28

Route 28 (Mattapan-Ruggles via Dudley Square) is one of the "key" routes in the MBTA system. Until 2003 it operated out of the Bartlett garage; when Arborway opened in 2003, Route 28 was shifted to the Cabot garage.


Route 28 began its history as Route 28 Arborway-Mattapan via Cummins Hwy. This route, which paralleled Route 32 to Forest Hills and Arborway and was used during rush hours only, was discontinued in 1981.


Route 29 (Mattapan-Dudley via Blue Hill Ave) handled all service on Blue Hill Avenue until a new version of Route 28 was established in 1987. This new Route 28 served between Mattapan station and the new Orange Line station at Ruggles, and in turn took over all service. Route 29 was relegated to a rush-hours only route, but only to Jackson Square. Late night service does run to Ruggles, but Route 28 handles all service throughout the week.


32

Route 32 (Forest Hills-Wolcott Sq) is the main route on Hyde Park Avenue serving Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, Hyde Park, and Readville.


Short history: Up until 1953, Route 32 was a full-service trolley route from Forest Hills to Cleary Square until it converted to trackless trolleys. In 1958, all trackless trolley services south of Forest Hills were discontinued and replaced by diesel buses. (The trolleys ended in the middle of Hyde Park Ave; however, a loop for the trackless trolleys to turn around were placed on Hyde Park Avenue and Pine St.)


In 1981, the former Route 31 bus route between Mattapan Square and Wolcott Square was consolidated with Route 32 at Cleary Sq to become Route 32 Forest Hills-Wolcott Square. (Route 50, which served Cleary Square and Forest Hills via Roslindale, was rerouted onto River St, Gordon Avenue, Summer St (inbound) and Austin St (outbound) to serve the Summer St Elderly Housing Area (aka Malone Elderly Housing).


Currently, Route 32 is the busiest route on Hyde Park Avenue, and runs all week. On weekdays, it runs every 5-7 minutes during rush hour; even on weekends, the wait is no longer than 10-15 minutes.

The 39 Forest Hills - Back Bay via Huntington Avenue route is the "temporary" replacement for Green Line "E" Branch service from Heath Street to Arborway which has run since December 1985.
