The T has been making methodical progress on Green Line improvement over the past decade.
The challenges go beyond aging equipment.
The MBTA will hold public meetings on the planned Green Line Expansion.
It has been a very bad week for the MBTA. Capital spending has been accelerating, but recent incidents raise questions about the operational side.
MBTA engineers have developed a transformational vision for the Green Line. Even more exciting, they have set in motion a convincing program for attaining that vision.
The MBTA has working for several years on “transit signal priority”, which utilizes GPS technology to help buses and surface light rail improve reliability and reduce delays. Now that the system is being tested, I’m hopeful that its rollout can include crowded bus routes in my district, particularly the 71 (Watertown) and 73 (Waverley) buses.
