MBTA Mattapan-Ashmont Trolley Line Public Meeting

DOT will be meeting on investments to the Mattapan-Ashmont Trolley Line.
The public can offer testimony.

Discussion Topics

  1. Mattapan-Ashmont Trolley Line

    Over the next two years the MBTA will invest approximately $8m to replace propulsion and breaking systems of the historic Presidential Conference Car (PCC) fleet.  This significant investment will extend the service life of the PCC fleet in the near term and into the next decade.  Three public meetings will be held to seek public comment, highlight the investments and discuss a study currently underway which will assess existing conditions of the corridor’s infrastructure and future needs beyond the useful service life of existing assets.
