As part of their $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan that began July 1, 2018, the MBTA is rebuilding and transforming the Green Line. This investment plan consists of projects that will increase overall capacity, remove barriers to access and make the system more resilient to weather. Some of the projects included in this plan are: the Green line Extension into Somerville and Medford, the introduction of new Green line vehicles, the consolidation of B branch stations, the improvement of accessibility at the Newton Highlands Station, the addition of solar powered E ink signs with real-time train information, the revamping of Green line intersections, the replacement of tracks and signals on the D branch and the addition of doors to protect tunnels from flooding.

From the MBTA:

The Green Line Transformation Public Meetings are a public forum for T riders and any interested stakeholders to learn more about the short- and long-term projects planned to make the Green Line safer, more comfortable and more reliable by 2030.
