Elected Officials to Hold Meeting on Green Line Improvements

The public meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square.

Twelve elected officials have agreed to co-sponsor a meeting this month to discuss ways to improve Green Line service and accessibility.

The January 17 meeting will include information on possible capital projects that could improve Green Line service, according to a report this week on YourTown Allston-Brighton. Elected officials will also discuss how the the costs of those projects fit into the MBTA's strained budget.

Sen. Cynthia Stone Creem (D-Newton) is one of the elected officials sponsoring the meeting, which was initiated by Sen. William Brownsberger (D-Belmont).

“Residents of Boston and the inner suburbs rely on the MBTA,” Creem said in a press release posted on Brownsberger's website. “While we struggle to find adequate funding mechanisms for mass transit, we must keep the public informed and involved in planning future improvements.”

According to YourTown Allston-Brighton, the Green Line is the MBTA's second-busiest train line, with average weekday ridership around 236,100. The Red Line's ridership is around 241,600.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. in the mezzanine conference room at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square.
