MBTA seeks public input on Urban Ring


Next month, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) plans to hold public hearings on the Urban Ring Circumferential Transit Improvement Project.



MBTA is preparing a Draft Environmental Impact Report/Statement (DEIR/S) for phase two of the project, which proposes new and improved commuter-rail stations, and bus routes.



At the meetings, MBTA officials plan to discuss project milestones, outline DEIR/S’ scope, update corridor transportation needs, and review proposed alignments and transit technologies.



The Urban Ring is a 15-mile long, one-mile wide area where MBTA is trying to connect all trolleys, subways and commuter-rail lines. The ring passes through parts of Boston, Chelsea, Everett, Medford, Somerville, Cambridge and Brookline.
