Criminal Trespass

Private Property Sign

All MBTA property is considered private. When a Transit Police Officer orders you to leave the property and issues you a verbal or written trespass notice, you must leave immediately. If you return to the property after being issued a trespass notice or if you pass through a restricted area or an area posted "NO TRESPASSING," you are subject to arrest, Massachusetts General Law, Chapter 266 Section 120. This applies to MBTA buildings, property, buses, subway trains, commuter rail trains, trackless trolleys, commuter boats, and other MBTA owned areas.
