Transforming the T

The T is evolving every day—renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system for people of all abilities.

Take a look at what we're working on to make the MBTA better.

Better Bus Project: Making transit better together

In cooperation with the communities served by MBTA bus routes, the current bus network will be compared to the Service Delivery Policy to identify and fill service gaps.

Starting September 1, The MBTA will offer expanded bus service from 10 PM – 3 AM in Boston and the surrounding communities.
