Sustainability on the T

The MBTA is one of the busiest transit systems in the country, with more than 1 million daily riders. Providing public transit to the residents of Boston takes more cars off the road, reduces the city's carbon footprint, and supports a more sustainable future for all of us.

Climate Change

Due to rising sea levels and stronger, more frequent weather events, we anticipate that climate change will have system-wide impacts.

We have taken the following steps to mitigate these risks:

  • A comprehensive analysis of the current system to understand which routes and stations are at the highest risk
  • A plan for tracking, managing, and updating at-risk infrastructure
  • A new vetting process for engineering and development decisions based on climate change adaptation criteria
