    The pedestrian walk signal is only triggered if pushed. There should be an AUTOMATIC pedestrian light.

    Could these T stops be combined? My DREAM would be to have the green line underground with longer stops that are sheltered from the weather.

    The T screeches when it drives around this corner. The shelters are also worn, and do not take into account the direction of the wind. The barriers banged up from multiple accidents.

    This is a dangerous intersection. There have been many accidents as well as people driving the wrong way due to unclear signage for non-locals unused to the carriage lane.

    Improve pedestrian crossings, ADA accessibility, and sight distance by expanding sidewalk space, adding curb ramps, and restricting parking next to crosswalks so that turning vehicles can see pedestrians.

    A friend died here on her bicycle around 2005. Another woman died here in 2007. There have been no improvements to this dangerous intersection for as long as I can remember (since at least 1999). This intersection hasn't been targeted by Vision Zero - the crashes by far predate that initiative, but this is a very important and well used bike connection, and there has never been any urgency to improve it. I am disgusted by the inability of the people who work for the CIty and the State to fix this intersection.

    Consider buffered or protected bike lanes along this stretch by removing on-street parking and excess road space, without significantly diminishing bus operations at bus stops.

    Remove at least 2-3 on-street parking spaces on the north (westbound) side of the street to provide more space for the 66 and 86 buses to maneuver and serve the bus stop. This will also increase visibility of pedestrians and the Blue Bikes station.

    There is too much pavement and vehicle lanes here and the public grounds should be expanded so that the police and residents can enjoy this area.

    Winship St is an unimportant street and could be closed to this intersection which would also allow for more space for people and bicyclists to roam.

    This could be a really cool space! If there weren't so many vehicle lanes. Are they all necessary? It is sad that the space in front of the restaurants have no where to be activated.

    People/Bicycle space should be introduced here and the motorist space eliminated.

    Can diverters be implemented on Lincoln St so motorists don't use this as a cut through? Motorists are always speeding here.

    This whole stretch is terrifying to walk or bike through. Connection to the path is so close... yet so far. Lots of space, please rethink and work with DCR to reimagine this parkway.

    This is a parking lane next to a giant parking garage - stop subsidizing parking, give this space back to people.

    Does this gas station need to be here? It is such an eyesore and could be replaced with a place where people hang out.

    Connect these two priority corridors

    The priority corridors here need to connect - what a waste if you don't connect these two links. I realize the bridge may be MassDOT owned, but please work with them to make these two links connect.

    This is a sketchy corridor to walk or bike on. More space needs to be allocated to these vulnerable modes so people can get go from Allston/Brighton to Cambridge. Otherwise, people will just drive. That's not what we should be telling people!

    Storrow Dr/Soldier's Field Rd should be repurposed for people walking, biking, and enjoying the waterfront. There's already a highway here - there doesn't need to be two!

    This intersection is now far too big to accommodate all motorists, buses, people, and bicyclists.

    This intersection needs a major overhaul like what Cambridge is doing with Inman Square. It should be separated into two different intersections and also the skew should be eliminated. Then, this area can become a real union square, instead of a union sewer, which is what it is now.

    This intersection is ridiculous. It is GIANT. Please put in a neighborhood roundabout or traffic calming.

    This intersection should be made into a protected intersection to prioritize pedestrian and bicycle movements.

    Related, the median is wasted space that could be re-allocated to the pedestrian/bicycle space.

    The bike connection to get to Harvard Ave from the extremely Narrow bridge is treacherous.
    The dedicated westbound right-turn lane is unnecessary and should be traded for pedestrian/bicycle space.

    People drive way too fast up this road. There is not enough enforcement to calm traffic. It's very scary trying to cross the street.

    Drivers sometimes turn from sparkhawk st onto Murdock st going the wrong way down a one way road. Better signage and enforcement is needed

    Consider removing parking on one side of Falkland. Routinely, folks entering Falkland don't see that there is someone coming the opposite direction, and someone has to reverse in order to allow the other to pass.
