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.
- 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.
