Tuesday, April 1, 6:30 PM – 8 PM, City Council Chambers at Chelsea City Hall, 500 Broadway.

The Silver Line Gateway Expansion will create a new branch of the MBTA Silver Line Service that will connect South Station and the Seaport District with East Boston and Chelsea. This service with an estimated travel time of just 15 to 19 minutes from the Seaport to Chelsea will connect thousands of residents north of downtown Boston with the rapidly growing Seaport District. The Silver Line Gateway Expansion will also include the modernization of the Chelsea Commuter Rail Station, which will be relocated to Everett Avenue as part of a new multimodal Silver Line/Commuter Rail Station.
