Read the letter from the Town of Lexington's Town Manager, read the letter from the Mass. Lexington delegation, and the letter from the community.
The community letter asks the MBTA for 30-minute or better service from the shared portions of routes 62 and 76, as it was pre-COVID, retain service to the High School and Center on the 76, and to extend the 77, from Arlington Heights to Lexington Center to connect us directly to Arlington Center, Porter Square, and Harvard Square.
