Select Board Letter to MBTA re: Classification of Mattapan Trolley


At their meeting on August 8, 2023, the Milton Select Board voted to send a letter to the MBTA Board of Directors seeking a formal explanation for the classification of the Mattapan Trolley Line which has stops in Milton as "rapid transit". The classification of this line is a determining factor in how the Town of Milton is required to comply with the MTBA Communities Act.

The letter which can be read in its entirety here, notes that the Mattapan Trolley is classified in the same manner that the heavy rail (blue, orange, and red) as well as the light rail (green) lines are classified. Information clarifying this classification was asked to be returned to the Town by September 8, 2023.

You can learn more about the MBTA Communities Act and the Town of Milton's work toward compliance here.

Reminder: The next MBTA Communities Act Public Forum will take place virtually via ZOOM on Tuesday, August 15, 2023. Details here.
