MBTA Red Line Blue Line Connector

MBTA Red Line Blue Line Connector

United States

Update: In April 2021, expansion plans for MassGeneral Hospital would include space for a new Blue Line station entrance on Cambridge Street near the Charles/MGH Red Line station – a sign that the MBTA’s long-delayed “red-blue connector” project could be gaining momentum. In April MBTA officials also discussed their new capital budget proposal, which included a $15 million line-item for “planning funds to extend the Blue Line to Charles/MGH.”(https://mass.streetsblog.org/2021/04/22/massgeneral-expansion-plans-include-space-for-new-blue-line-station/)

The project was originally intended for completion by 2010, but has been repeatedly delayed
The MBTA’s Red Line and Blue Line are the only two lines in Boston’s subway system that do not connect at any point. The objective of this project is to extend the Blue Line from the Bowdoin station approximately 1,500 feet underneath Cambridge Street and connect it with the Red Line at the Charles/MGH station. Creating this connection will greatly increase ridership and relieve congestion at numerous transfer stations. It will allow residents of the North Shore, Cambridge, Beacon Hill, and East Boston much easier access to Downtown Boston. In addition, it is believed that the project will also decrease automobile emissions and improve air quality in the surrounding area.
