This section contains additional pieces of writing that may not warrant full posts on their own, but which I want to collate for reference, or which are useful as ongoing resources beyond their initial publication as blog posts. This also includes appendices on blog posts, as well as various things I have written on ArchBoston over the years.


Mapping the MBTA’s Current Frequent Bus Network

Mapping the MBTA’s Proposed Redesigned Frequent Bus Network

Diagramming Downtown Crossing

Mapping the MBTA’s Financial District platforms and a potential Congress St subway

Mapping New York City’s Super Commuter Rail Network


Bay Village

My “current” proposal for Bay Village is: Tremont, Shawmut Ave, and Tufts Medical Center Stations: a design for a new set of stations and junctions at Bay Village

This builds on previous work at Alternatives for a future-proofed station and portal for a Green Line branch to Nubian, as well as Proposals for a multi-directional junction at Bay Village to support Green Line service to and between Back Bay & Huntington, Nubian, South Station, and Park Street (although I consider this earlier proposal to be deprecated in favor of my current iteration).


The Navy Line: A new BRT line for Boston

Regional Rail

High-frequency Regional Rail to Lowell is a no-brainer

Norumbega Junction: Extending the Green Line to the Framingham/Worcester Line

Intercity Rail

Adding New Hampshire to the Northeast Corridor via Worcester

Intercity rail service to North Adams via Springfield

Whimsical proposals

Ideas that are “out there” but could maybe still work

A whimsical proposal: Overnight Sleeper Services For Boston

A whimsical proposal for ferries on the Charles River

A whimsical proposal for (moar) ferries to Logan Airport

The Longwood Transitway: Getting to a Reasonable Transit Pitch from a Crazy Transit Pitch

Unserious proposals

“Proposals” that aren’t really proposals

An unserious proposal: the Milford-Medway-Millis-Medfield-Mattapan-Ashmont High-Speed Line (or “MMMMM Line”)

An unserious proposal: Project Blue Lace

Analysis: the MBTA’s Current Frequent Bus Network

Analysis: the MBTA’s Bus Network(s) in Dorchester

Analysis: Super High Frequency Routes in the Bus Network Redesign

Analysis: F Line to Nubian isn’t enough: a speed and travel time analysis of different transit modes

Analysis: Silver Line ridership patterns, on SL1, SL3, and among downtown transfers

Analysis: Commuter rail to New Hampshire makes just as much sense as commuter rail to Providence

Analysis: the 29’s current ridership may underestimate its potential for rapid transit

Analysis: crayoning greenfield rapid transit to Chelsea and Everett

Analysis: utilizing existing Central Subway capacity for Green Line service to Needham

What if? Imagining an alternate history for the downtown core of the MBTA (and visualizing BERy’s off-set stations pairs)
