Reasonable transit pitch: fill some connectivity gaps in the bus network.
- Extend the 91 to Kenmore via Brookline/Pearl and Comm Ave (with 20 minute or better headways) Getting across the Charles from anywhere west of downtown currently sucks - the 1, 47, CT2, and 66 are all overcrowded and unreliable. This would provide a more reliable crosstown connection between the Green and Red lines, and vastly improve Cambridgeport's transit access. (You could probably get the needed buses just by unfucking the Memorial Drive rotary.)
- A new route from Watertown to Kenmore via Arsenal, North Beacon, and Comm Ave. Gives East Watertown and the Boston Landing area access to the Green Line (and thus Back Bay), and increases service on the inner section of the 57.
- Move the 66 to North Beacon, Everett, and Western. Unfucks that section of the 66, and gives Boston Landing station some crosstown connections.
- Replace the Barry's-Union segment with a new route out of Harvard. I've shown it going to Kenmore (essentially a bus version of F-Line's Harvard branch), but it could just as easily follow Cambridge to Brighton Center or Harvard to Brookline Village.
