// THE MISSING LINK

Red Blue Header No Text-02.png

MassDOT's Focus40 draft for the 2040 transportation vision lowered the priority of the long-awaited (& originally, mandated as Big Dig mitigation) connection of the Red & Blue Lines at Charles/MGH in favor of a long walkway connection between State & Downtown Crossing. TransitMatters built a coalition of riders, advocates and elected officials and successfully lobbied the MBTA FMCB to call for the inclusion of the Connector in Focus40.

status: The connector will be included in focus40
next milestone: funding and inclusion in the cip


THANK YOU!

ON 2/4/19, sEC. POLLACK ANNOUNCED THE RED-BLUE CONNECTOR WILL BE INCLUDED IN FOCUS40 AS A “NEXT PRIORITY,” TO BE COMPLETED BY 2040.

WHAT’S NEXT?

ITS INCLUSION IN FOCUS40 IS A SMALL VICTORY AND WE’RE FAR FROM DONE. OUR NEXT STEP WILL BE TO SECURE THE PROPER FUNDING AND GET THE CONNECTOR INCLUDED INTO THE NEXT MBTA CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PLAN. YOU CAN READ OUR FULL STATEMENT BELOW.
