accessible Shuttle Accessibility

Shuttles are accessible to people with disabilities. Some bus shuttles may be provided by third-party contractors and will look different than MBTA buses. Some may provide accessibility via a lift in the back rather than a ramp in front.

Trains Run at Reduced Speed

After completing track work, we typically implement speed restrictions while we monitor the tracks to ensure that ballast and other materials have settled properly. Restrictions are lifted after we get confirmation from an engineer, which can sometimes take several days.

Building a Better T

As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.
