This majority minority city of 45, has undergone a transformation of its open space and transportation infrastructure seemingly overnight. Now, the cumulative effects of this leadership style are beginning to show.
Bloomberg - Are you a robot?

Inspired by the bus rapid transit BRT he saw on a visit to Mexico City and with local support from the Barr Foundation and the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy ITDP , Monty has been iteratively improving the bus corridor along Broadway that serves five bus lines and as many as 10, passengers daily. Beginning in December , the City took away parking on one side of the street and used traffic cones to create the first bus lane prototype.
The cones were replaced by paint, and eventually the entire lane was painted red to delineate the bus-only lane.
Traffic signals have also been upgraded to give priority to approaching buses. Improvements such as these are now being made elsewhere in the Boston region and bear a physical resemblance to the Silver Line on Washington Street installed in —but Everett has gone further. The City is pursuing Gold Standard BRT, which includes better protection for the bus lanes and paying fares before boarding. None of these changes came with formal public meetings.
Instead, he has used the pilot projects coupled with surveys, measurable travel-time improvements, and continued upgrades as the community process, thereby generating support well beyond what a whole series of meetings could have produced. Partnerships with regional advocacy groups such as the LivableStreets Alliance, as well as ITDP, has enabled the City to do more outreach, collect input, and collaborate across municipal borders.
Everett has had fewer and less vocal grassroots advocates than most of its neighboring communities, so although residents are overwhelmingly appreciative, city officials are aware that there may be future limitations. Everett is hoping that the pilot projects will show residents what is possible and inspire them to become advocates. Lessons learned from the bus pilot have helped to advance other projects. With that realization, Monty began focusing more on building bike lanes and on growing available bike share options.
