MALDEN IS INVESTING IN ITS PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION NETWORK

The City wants to know what you think about public transportation in Malden and how it can be improved.

MALDEN – The City is undertaking a Transit Action Plan to create a community-based vision for the next 10-15 years on how to prioritize investment in Malden’s multi-modal transportation network. As a resident, employee, or somebody who passes through Malden using public transportation, your feedback is essential and a key ingredient in our recipe for success! You’re invited to join the Malden Transit Action Plan’s first virtual community meeting on June 1st from 6:30-8pm to help identify issues, opportunities, and a broader vision for Malden’s transit network. You can join the conversation using the meeting details on the City’s website: https://tinyurl.com/2p8djwfp. If you can’t make the meeting, you can also make your voice heard by completing a short survey before June 6th: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/maldentap.

This first community meeting focuses on the Transit Action Plan’s first phase: Understanding Existing Conditions. In addition to soliciting feedback from the community, the City’s consultants have identified barriers to using transit, assessed current mobility patterns, conducted preliminary observations of stations, and many other analyses. Taking part in this community meeting is vital for the City to understand what is and is not working for the public transportation system in Malden.

Subsequent phases of the project include Identifying Potential Mobility Strategies and Developing Near and Long-Term Recommendations. They will include community meetings to solicit feedback and be informed by residents’ vision for the public transportation network. These meetings will take place in Fall and Winter 2022 and specific details will be posted on the City’s website as soon as they are available.

If you’d like to learn more about the project, you can contact the Transit Action Plan’s Project Manager, John Alessi, in the Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development: jalessi@cityofmladen.org.
