As part of the historic transportation reform underway, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, MassDOT, will launch a new customer-focused website at 12:01am on November 1, 2009. The web address:
The new website design, developed in-house by a team of employees, provides information and links for all transportation agencies in one place, with four main sections for the four new transportation divisions (Highway, Rail&Transit, Aeronautics and Registry of Motor Vehicles). A new transportation calendar will provide residents and businesses with a single location to view public events and hearings hosted by MassDOT.
The Registry of Motor Vehicles Division home page design will be updated to reflect the new MassDOT webpage design so frequent online customers and returning customers should not be alarmed at the change in design. The existing RMV web link at www.mass.gov/rmv will auto-forward directly to the new RMV home page.
The MBTA website at www.mbta.com and Regional Transit Authority website designs will not change.
As of October 31st, former Turnpike and MassHighway Department cameras have been merged into one online state Highway Division traffic camera page, www.mass.gov/511/cameras. Residents and commuters can view live traffic cameras throughout the highway system.
