What is Focus40?

Focus40 is a 25-year strategic plan for how the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) can meet the needs of the region in the year 2040.

Focus40 is:

  • Highlighting long-term performance, reliability, and capacity needs for the MBTA
  • Strengthening municipal partnerships for improved transit in our region
  • Conducting an extensive public engagement process

Every day, the MBTA works to improve service for today's customers. The evolving and dynamic nature of the region it serves argues for a long-term vision, too.  Focus40 is developing a 25-year investment strategy that recognizes needs of the current system, as well as the shifting demographics, changing climate, and evolving technologies that may alter the role the MBTA will play in the Greater Boston of the future.

Focus40 will recommend a set of investment strategies for the MBTA, including programs, places and policies that will help the MBTA plan for a variety of future scenarios, and places where key investments are needed.

Focus40 Goals & Objectives

Through an analysis of the system and feedback through the public engagement process, MassDOT and the MBTA have developed draft goals for the Focus40 strategic plan. These goals are also consistent with the goals of the MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board (FMCB) Strategic Plan
