BAT partners with Massasoit Community College for Sustainable Planting Project

BAT partnered with Massasoit Community College’s Intro. To Environmental Science Class to undertake a sustainable planting project at the BAT Intermodal Centre. The project involved the design and planting of drought resistant species in a highly visible area of the BAT Centre. The project provided experiential learning opportunities for Massasoit Community College students and broadened BAT’s partnership with regional institutions of higher learning.

Check out BAT’s Sustainability Page for pictures.

Express Runs

BAT is currently Pilot testing Express Runs on the Ashmont and Massasoit Routes.  Express runs will leave from the BAT Centre and continue on to the end of the line without stopping along the way.  These runs were added to aid in overcrowding and to assist in BAT’s efforts to get passengers to their destinations on time.   The Ashmont Express buses leave at 6:00 am, 1:00 pm, and 5:10 pm from the BAT Centre.   The Massasoit Express runs will leave from the BAT Centre at 7:20 am, and from Massasoit Community College Express trips run at 11:05am, 12:35 pm, and 2:15pm. These trips are provided in addition to the scheduled buses and leave the BAT Centre and the end of line just prior to the scheduled run to avoid traffic.
