The MBTA will hold a meeting in Arlington on June 9 seeking feedback on recommendations to improve the 77 bus route that runs from Arlington Heights to Harvard Square in Cambridge.

The route is one of 15 routes the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has targeted for improvements as part of a Key Bus Route Improvement Program using $10 million in grant funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

The meeting about the 77 Bus Route will be held in Arlington Town Hall on Thursday, June 9 from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

In addition to connecting Arlington residents to Red Line trains in Harvard Square, the bus also stops at the Red Line and commuter rails stops in Porter Square, as well as stops at Harvard University and Arlington High School and North Cambridge.

According to the MBTA, preliminary recommendations being considered for the bus route include consolidating some bus stops along Massachusetts Avenue, as well as adding benches and shelters, relocating some stops and investigating some traffic signal improvements.

A detailed description of the preliminary recommendations for the No. 77 bus can be found online at www.mbta.com, under the T's Key Bus Route Improvement Program listing.
