Draft Focus40 Plan
Focus40 is the 25-year investment plan to position the MBTA to meet the needs of the Greater Boston region in 2040. On July 30, 2018 the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the MBTA released a draft of the Focus40 Plan. The Focus40 Plan will serve as a comprehensive playbook guiding all capital planning initiatives at the MBTA. It will ensure that the MBTA will become the reliable, robust, and resilient transit system the region will require in the future.
The release of this draft provides an opportunity for MBTA customers and stakeholders to share their ideas, hopes, and concerns for the future of the MBTA. Throughout the draft document, there are call out boxes requesting feedback. You can respond via the Focus40 Draft Plan Feedback Form.
