The MBTA today kicked off a program to replace the MBTA’s outdated system maps.  The new updated system maps are more customer-friendly, including for the first time ever connections to key bus routes to and from subway stations. 

One of Boston’s busiest stations, Government Center, below in the video, was the first to display three brand new maps: a line map identifying current stations along the Green Line replacing a sign with outdated Green Line stops; a system map showing connections to the subway and key routes; and a neighborhood map identifying places of interest in the surrounding Government Center area that has not been updated since station modernization in 1967. 

The replacement of outdated subway maps and signage throughout the subway system will continue with Orient Heights, Bowdoin and Copley Stations.  System-wide sign improvements will include:

• New key bus route maps and neighborhood maps installed at transit stations with connections to key routes.

• Smaller maps typically installed in buses and rail vehicles will be updated and replaced as needed.

• Folded system maps and bus shelter maps will be updated to reflect various changes.

• A program is under development to address outdated Commuter Rail maps including the installation of commuter rail maps at stations and major hubs and terminals.
