MBTA General Manager Richard Davey said the increased service is designed not only to make commuting more comfortable for existing customers but to also add capacity for new riders.
In addition to more than doubling the number of 3-car trains on the Green Line’s B and D branches, the MBTA will introduce 3-car trains to the E branch (Huntington Avenue) for the first time. This also means that 3-car trains will serve Lechmere Station for the first time in at least six years.
Last year, for the first time in many years, the MBTA reintroduced 3-car trains to the Green Line, on which 200,000 passenger trips are made each weekday.
