It's better, just not quite good enough.That was the message to the MBTA on Wednesday, when the transit agency revealed its revamped Better Bus redesign at its first public meeting since July. The agency spent the three months since the last public gathering, on July 28, reviewing rider feedback and incorporating suggestions into a new plan.After a rocky start (the provided Zoom link was limited to 300 participants), residents complained the agency was 'robbing Peter to pay Paul' in terms of deciding which routes to cancel, which to redirect and which to shore up with longer operating hours and more frequent service.
