Welcome to the MBTA
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, more commonly known as the T, is one of the oldest public transit systems in the United States. It's also the largest transit system in Massachusetts.
As a division of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), the MBTA provides subway, bus, Commuter Rail, ferry, and paratransit service to eastern Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island.
The Red, Orange, Blue, and Green subway lines provide fast, easy connections to and from Boston and surrounding cities, including Cambridge, Newton, Revere, and Quincy.
The MBTA operates 171 bus routes and 4 rapid transit routes in the Greater Boston area, with connections to the subway and commuter rail.
Commuter Rail Lines
The Commuter Rail connects eastern Massachusetts with transit hubs in Boston, including subway, bus, and Amtrak services.
Boston’s commuter ferry service connects the inner and outer harbor with transport hubs in Boston at the Charlestown Navy Yard and Logan Airport.
The RIDE is the MBTA’s door-to-door paratransit service for customers who cannot easily use or access the T, whether they live in the Boston area or are visiting from out of town.
