This study identifies relatively low-cost, quick-implementation measures that can significantly improve pedestrian and bicyclist access at six locations in the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority system: Ayer Station (commuter rail); Boston College Branch (B Line) stops, Boston College Station to Chestnut Hill Avenue (Green Line); Cleveland Circle and Reservoir stops (Green Line, C and D); Forest Hills Station (Orange Line, commuter rail, and bus); Malden Center Station (Orange Line, commuter rail, and bus); and Mansfield Station (commuter rail and bus). Detailed in the report are improvements to both station property and surrounding areas that would eliminate hazards for bicyclists and pedestrians, increase ease of access to the station from surrounding neighborhoods for those users, or otherwise enhance the attractiveness of the station for access by foot or bicycle. The report also includes a summary that describes the types of issues encountered and provides general recommendations for improving pedestrian and bicyclist access to other transit stations in the region.
