Hub and Spoke: Core Transit Congestion and the Future of Transit and Development in Greater Boston

The Hub & Spoke Report (click to download), authored by Stephanie Pollack and released in June 2012, focuses on the growth of transit ridership in Greater Boston, and the effects of development trends on future ridership. The work was funded by the ULI Foundation, A Better City (ABC), MASCO, and Our Transportation Future ( OTF).

The report highlights the existing capacity issues of the MBTA (segments of all subway lines other than the Blue Line are already over capacity at parts of the day), and predicts further growth of 100,000-367,000 new daily riders over the next ten years.
