MBTA SilverLine_0174MassDOT’s Silver Line Gateway Alternatives Analysis study is reviewing the potential benefits, costs and impacts of high-quality bus rapid transit service enhancements for Chelsea and East Boston.

The next public meeting for the Silver Line Gateway Alternatives Analysis project is as follows:

June 19, 6-8pm, Chelsea City Hall, City Council Chamber, 500 Broadway

MassDOT is evaluating the potential for extending Silver Line service from South Station and the Seaport District to new connections with the Blue Line and East Boston neighborhoods at Airport Station and the City of Chelsea via Massport’s newly constructed Marty Coughlin Bypass Road.  These connections would link important gateways, including neighborhoods and the critical air, rail and port points of entry to the Boston area.

A Silver Line extension could fill a critical gap in access between residents in Chelsea, East Boston and other Blue Line communities and new opportunities across Boston Harbor. Chelsea includes a greater proportion of transit-dependent residents than any other city or town in the Boston area.

MassDOT is working with residents, businesses, community organizations and elected officials in Chelsea and Boston over the next several months in exploring alternative routes for enhanced transit service.
We welcome ideas and participation. Visit the Silver Line Gateway website to learn more.
