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.

As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment program we are rebuilding the Red Line, from the signal system to the facility where we store and care for our vehicles each day.

In preparation for our new and expanded Orange Line fleet, we’re upgrading our signal system and improving our vehicle storage, testing, and maintenance facilities.
