Event Description

Meeting Canceled

On March 10, 2020, the Executive Office of Administration and Finance for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts released Coronavirus prevention guidelines for executive branch agencies, which includes the MBTA. Given the evolving nature of COVID-19 and out of an abundance of caution, the Commonwealth is adopting precautionary measures effective March 11, 2020 which includes cancellation of discretionary public meetings and gatherings organized by executive branch agencies.

Apologies for any inconvenience the cancellations have caused. The MBTA is committed to public engagement and will work to reschedule canceled meetings as appropriate.
