Havign recently moved to E 4th, having the bus come down this crowded neighborhood street makes no sense for efficiency and for quality of life for residents who have to deal with the bus noise so close to their houses. E Broadway is much better suited to handle the traffic as well as a more optimized route!

I live in South Boston and rely on public transportation to get to and from work every day. While the population in southie has increased significantly due to the added condos, the public transportation has not.

The #7 bus is nearly always full and should be moved to Broadway to be more efficient. I would like to see increased capacity to the financial district.

I should not have to leave my house at 6:30 in the morning in order to get to work by 8:30. This is am embarrassment- I live 2 miles from my office. I'd walk, but I fear for my life since many of the sidewalks are unplowed. Aren't we a major city? Pathetic.

The MBTA hasn't kept up with the influx of residents in South Boston

The 11 bus is consistently overcrowded in the morning, often not stopping while we wait in the cold weather. MBTA has raised rates yet does nothing to improve the poor service in the South Boston community as it grows.

Hard to get out of Southie on MBTA, especially on weekends or off hours. Major residential area with minimal service routes, but plenty of suitable street access. Day Blvd, anyone? It'd be great to get residents to forgo their cars in favor of public transit I have, but it's a hard argument with the restrictive MBTA options currently available. Parking and double parking impact would be significant!

i am tired of watching buses pass me by . Having to walk three stops away from my local stop to get on a bus . Also on trash morning the buses get stuck behind the trash trucks cause they do collections on east 4th stree at the same time as rush hour in the morning . I often miss my connections as a results ( number 4) ( navy yard boat) . As the bad weather comes again this is going to get worse .

My daily commute takes an absurd amount of time despite living less than 2.5 miles from my office.
