MBTA Mattapan TrolleyjpgMassDOT and the MBTA will hold three public meetings to discuss the results of the Mattapan Trolley Line Study. The times and locations for the public meetings are as follows:

 

  • Wednesday, March 27 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the ABCD, 550 River St, Mattapan
  • Tuesday, April 2 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Milton Council on Aging, 10 Walnut St, Milton
  • Thursday, April 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Lower Mills Branch Public Library, 27 Richmond St, Dorchester

MassDOT and the MBTA will present the results of the study and solicit feedback from members of the public.

Two years ago, the MBTA sought and received public input on the future of the Mattapan Line. The MBTA considered immediate and long term needs and as a result, $7.9M has been invested to upgrade the existing system and vehicle fleet to ensure continued service to the community for the next 8-10 years.

All locations are accessible to people with disabilities. MassDOT provides reasonable accommodations and/or language assistance free of charge upon request (including but not limited to interpreters in American Sign Language and languages other than English, open or closed captioning for videos, assistive listening devices and alternate material formats, such as audio tapes, Braille and large print), as available. For accommodation or language assistance, please contact Pat Nestor by phone 857-368-9018, or by email at patrick.nestor@dot.state.ma.us.

Requests should be made as soon as possible prior to the meeting, and for more difficult to arrange services including sign-language, CART or language translation or interpretation, requests should be made at least ten (10) business days before the meeting. In case of inclement weather, meeting cancellation announcements will be posted on the internet at mbta.com.
