It looks like most of the problems would be solved by protected bus lanes. Every single block on this stretch is mostly parking lots.

The BPDA's proposal is literally to create protected bus lanes.

If you support the rezoning and more housing for people, add your comments here.

If you believe that neighborhoods should never change and that parking lots and derelict warehouses and repair shops are the best land use in Allston, and that there is no housing crisis because you, a white boomer, were able to buy your house 50 years ago and have had it with these millennials complaining, the BPDA has a special link for you to provide feedback here.

Compared to Allston Village or Brighton Center or Packard's Corner, there's not much here.
