  1. Iain, GRT is doing focused service improvements leading up to light rail. They are rolling out new iXpress routes every other year and doing smaller service additions in the “off” years. In 2011 GRT added the 201 iXpress and reorganized routes on the west side of K-W. This year they expanded service in Cambridge. Next year they are adding the 202 iXpress along University Avenue and reorganizing routes in Waterloo around it.

  2. The short answer is no service improvements in Cambridge in 2013. In 2014 they will upgrade the iXpress to its aBRT form in Cambridge, and will probably do some reorganization and improvements in Cambridge as well, but I am not sure.
