Our team is working on a project in Boston located near the MBTA Silver Line (0.46 miles from the Silver Line Way stop). The bus system runs in a dedicated transit tunnel from Silver Line Way to South Station in downtown Boston, which would classify it as a BRT. However, after the Silver Line Way station the buses take surface streets for the remainder of their routes (some in dedicated bus lanes, but most are intermixed with regular traffic), which would classify them as regular buses.

Since the stop is greater than 0.25 miles from our nearest functional entry, whether the Silver Line is classified as a regular bus system or a BRT system could make or break the amount of points our project recieves for access to quality transit. Does anyone have any experience using the Silver Line in their submission process?

Thanks in advance for your help!
