Posted by Kate Fichter, Green Line Extension Project Manager

We are pleased to announce that the MBTA recently published a request for proposals for the development and delivery of 24 new Green Line "Type 9" light rail vehicles. These new vehicles will help to support the future operation of the Green Line Extension. Please visit the MBTA website to review the invitation for bids in more detail.

Also, a recent article from the American Planning Association featured a cover story on the Green Line Extension. We hope you will find it interesting.

As always, if you have any questions on the project, please email at katherine.fichter@state.ma.us.

More information about the project can be found on the project website at www.mass.gov/greenlineextension.
