The Engineering & Transportation Division, in conjunction with the Highway Division, will be installing 20 new benches along the public way to improve pedestrian amenities and promote walkability and public transit in the Town.

This project, which was funded through the Town's FY20 Transportation Network Fees, is a joint project between staff from the Transportation Division and the Public Transportation Advisory Committee, the Pedestrian Advisory Committee, & the Brookline Community Aging Network. It includes the installation of an additional 20 benches along the public way at key MBTA Bus stop locations as well as other locations along the Beacon Street Corridor to promote public transit access and the walkability of the community as part of the Town's commitment to remain an Age-Friendly Community through the World Health Organization's Age Friendly Communities program
