Reimagining the Future of Transportation for Kendall Square

Together we can build a transportation system that is safe, reliable, resilient, and sustainable so everyone can access the opportunity and innovation happening in Kendall.

Kendall grew up on the MBTA red line and is a model for transit oriented development where major employers are property owners who are actively engaged in making sure that we have sustainable and practical transportation options. The KSA educates our community about our transportation challenges, advocates for improvements, and supports members in taking direct action. 

Transportation Learning Community

 Want to learn more about transportation? KSA convenes our monthly Transportation Learning Community to explore transportation reform and innovation opportunities. Meetings feature guest speakers from MassDOT, the MBTA, MIT Transit Lab, and the City of Cambridge and are meant to facilitate a robust dialogue. KSA members are welcome to attend these meetings. Sign up for meeting notices by filling out the form to the right.

Transportation Advocacy

Want to advocate for improvement? KSA provides its members with a platform for collective action. In the last several years we have led the charge to make the Longfellow Bridge more bike and pedestrian friendly, released the Transport Kendall Report advocating for improvements to the Red Line, new bus connections, and transit on the Grand Junction. We have held leaders accountable for Red Line derailments and we have identified and shared several options for raising revenue for transportation statewide and finding solutions that keep Massachusetts moving forward.

Transportation ADVANCE

In Fall 2019, we launched our Transportation ADVANCE program which translates knowledge into action as Kendall leaders experiment with solutions for our congestion problems to meet our sustainability goals and provide our community (and the Commonwealth) safe and reliable commutes. 

News & Updates

We must invest in a new vision for transportation and connect with our legislators to build a revenue package that will move Massachusetts beyond a state of good repair and invest in a system that reflects what our economy should be."
