Meeting Info

Date: May 27, 2021 at 6 PM

Location: Virtual • Zoom • Boston, MA

Attendees: General Public

Event Description

The MBTA Capital Investment Plan (CIP) is a short-term, financially constrained investment program that funds the planning, construction, and capital maintenance of assets across the MBTA. It is a rolling five-year plan, updated annually in coordination with MassDOT and the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization.

Due to the lingering economic challenges facing the Commonwealth as we address the impacts of COVID-19, this CIP is a one-year plan for SFY 2022. MassDOT and the MBTA anticipate publishing a five-year capital plan for SFY 2023 – 2027.
