Red Line Test Track Project 88% Complete
Updated on December 26, 2019
We've been working on infrastructure investments that will help bring new Red Line vehicles into service:
- Construction of the new Red Line test track is complete. We installed new track, power, and third rail, and the first stage of vehicle testing has started.
- We also installed an access track with a direct connection to Cabot Yard for faster delivery, testing, and commissioning of new Red Line vehicles.
- Construction of the vehicle testing facility and preparation for the new power substation is expected to be completed in winter 2020.
We look forward to the role these upgrades will play in bringing the new Red Line fleet into service.
Building a Better T
As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.
