The Middlesex 3 Restaurant Express Shuttle Program

Downtown Lowell and the Burlington Mall-The District are about 14 miles from each other; however, limited public transit along Route 3 has created a barrier for second shift employees who are seeking jobs at the Burlington restaurants, hotels, retailers, and healthcare facilities. As a result, almost 600 service positions in Burlington are unfilled and Lowell residents are unable to work. 

Welcome the Middlesex 3 Restaurant Express! 

In order to help improve transit mobility, the Town of Burlington has been working with the Middlesex 3 Transportation Management Association (M3TMA) and other Middlesex 3 municipalities, businesses and partners to improve public transit between Lowell and Burlington. The Middlesex 3 Coalition and the Middlesex 3 Transportation Management Association (M3TMA) are taking steps to address the transportation gaps in the region. This includes creating a second shift and weekend shuttle service to connect job seekers in Lowell with the 600 available jobs in Burlington. 

The benefits include:

– The ability to book your ride online
– Live shuttle tracker
