Transforming the T

The T is evolving every day—renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system for people of all abilities.

Take a look at what we're working on to make the MBTA better.

Better Bus Project: Making transit better together

Too many of our bus routes still fail to live up to our own standards. Through the Better Bus Project, we are changing that.


A Mattapan Line Trolley on the tracks near Capen Street Station

We’re making improvements on the Mattapan Line to ensure accessible, reliable, and modern service for Dorchester, Mattapan, and Milton for years to come.


North Quincy station, parking lot, and bike racks

A surface-level parking lot at North Quincy Station is being replaced with a new parking garage as part of a redevelopment project at the station.
