MBTA Blue Line 2
A public meeting for the Red Line/Blue Line Connector will be held as follows:

Monday, October 26, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in the auditorium at The Shriners Hospital, 51 Blossom St., Boston.

The proposed Red Line/Blue Line Connector would link the only two lines that do not intersect in the MBTA’s rapid transit system. The Blue Line runs from Bowdoin Station in downtown Boston to Wonderland Station in Revere, a distance of approximately seven miles.

The project will look at options for extending the Blue Line approximately 1,500 feet to make a connection with the Charles/MGH Station on the Red Line.  Alternatives for the project are under investigation and include options with the existing Bowdoin Station eliminated or reconfigured.  Construction options will also be discussed.

The Connector will be the subject of a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) in 2010. Learn more.
