Boston in Transit

Thursday, February 3, 7 pm – on Zoom

Please join us on Thursday, February 3rd at 7 pm, as transit historian and local author Steven Beaucher discusses his recent book, Boston in Transit. He will be focusing on topics of interest to us in the Back Bay.

Boston in Transit tells the story of Boston’s development and growth through the lens of public transportation, starting with a simple ferry carrying English colonists through the arrival of steam trains and fleets of electric streetcars and buses, to the creation and evolution of the MBTA. Steven will lead us through highlights of public transit in Boston from 1630 through the present day.

In addition to being an author and transit historian, Steven is also a map expert and the proprietor of WardMaps on Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge.

This is a free presentation, but please email to register by the cutoff date of Tuesday, February 1st. A Zoom link for the presentation will be emailed to you before the presentation on February 3rd.

We are looking forward to seeing you then.
