Transportation News

There are numerous events related to transportation happening this fall! Whether you are unsure of what modes of transportation can get you or your loved ones to/from work, after school, or other activities, or you have suggestions for how to improve transportation, there is an event (and a survey) for you! Lexpress has also made some changes to its service.

Lexpress Schedule & Route Changes
Lexpress starts its fall schedule the last week of August. NEW this year is the addition of a 7:30AM route year-round. “We hope the addition of bus service at 7:30AM will allow people who need to commute to work a better time for making transit connections, whether they work in Lexington, Burlington, connect to The REV or to MBTA buses. Taking Lexpress this time of day may also be a good option for middle and high school students who miss their school bus,” said Susan Barrett, Transportation Manager.

The new Lexpress schedule also includes a pull-in to Emerson Gardens during the 10AM-2PM routes. Lexpress schedules and maps can be found at Want real-time arrival information? Download the free RideSystems app for your smartphone or visit
