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.
The CIP includes over 500 unique capital projects. These investments aim to maintain a state of good repair, modernize our assets, expand service, and meet our strategic priorities and performance goals. It is informed by the Transit Asset Management Plan, the 2019 Safety Review Panel Report, and by long-term plans such as Focus40 and Rail Vision.

Capital Investment Plans by Fiscal Year
The CIP is a roadmap of proposed investments for the coming years. Given the lingering economic challenges facing the Commonwealth as we address the impacts of COVID-19, the SFY 2022 CIP is published as a one-year plan. The SFY 2022 Draft CIP is available for viewing and public comment at mass.gov/cip.
Consistent with MassDOT’s approach for the SFY 2021 CIP, the SFY 2022 CIP is a “maintenance of effort” plan that reflects our current realities while continuing to improve the reliability, safety, and resiliency of our transportation infrastructure. It focuses on continuing investments underway as well as targeted new investments to advance our goals of bringing you faster, safer, more reliable service.
MassDOT and the MBTA anticipate publishing a five-year capital plan for SFY 2023 – 2027.
Each spring, MassDOT conducts public meetings throughout the Commonwealth to share the proposed CIP and request public comment. The SFY 2022 CIP public meetings will be conducted virtually as allowed by Governor Baker’s Executive Order suspending certain provisions of the Open Meeting Law dated March 12, 2020.
The following meetings will provide an overview of investments in the MassDOT/MBTA SFY 2022 CIP:
