A comprehensive look at replacing the old PCC trolleys

The Mattapan High Speed Line is old and difficult to maintain. MBTA is currently looking at future options on how to maintain transit service along that corridor. As far as I know, there are 4 options:

  • Do nothing, and continue to maintain the PCCs.
  • Replace with a modern light rail vehicle.
  • Replace with bus service.
  • Extend the Red Line
