The “B” line of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Green line runs through the neighborhoods along Commonwealth Avenue, a prominent area in Allston. In addition to the B line, the Allston area is also the region for bus route 57, to assist the congestion caused by heavy traffic. Although drivers and operators of public transportation such as the subway and buses do their best to act in a manner that respects the safety of all parties involved, sometimes accidents happen. Accidents may occur due to a variety of reasons including but not limited to equipment malfunctions, pedestrians not crossing in designated areas, excessive speed, and inattention. If you are injured as a result of the negligence of a driver or operator of a subway or bus in Allston, your claim will be investigated to determine the type of relief you must obtain. As for claims against private bus companies, operators, or other parties not directly linked to public entities, the process is similar to that of commercial vehicle accidents.

In June of 2012, plans were announced for the construction of a new station called New Brighton Landing, which will be located between Allston and Brighton that would serve the combined area. New Brighton Landing is a planned commuter rail station on the Framingham/Worcester Line and the station will be located just west of the Everett Street. The construction and development of a new commuter rail station in a heavily populated and traffic congested area is not an easy task for the city to undertake. Complicated projects such as the New Brighton Landing station requires extensive planning for the safety of the individuals involved in the construction site, for example the various workers, as well as persons who must maneuver around the site either while walking or driving. While Allston city officials continue to work diligently to promote different projects to aid in Allston’s growth and prominence, they can only do their best to keep all residents safe. Although residents strive to maintain an environment amiable for all individuals living and working in the city, accidents happen and most accidents occur due to the negligence of one or more of the parties involved. Common accidents in Allston include car accidents, pedestrian accidents, and construction site accidents.
