Boston
metro, light rail

Boston is home to massachusett's only light rail and metro system. With the exception, of course, of the imaginary
Cape Cod subway.


Metro

Boston's subway was the first to open in North America. In 1897, the Tremont Street subway was opened. It now serves as part of the Green Line subway.

Boston has three metro lines and two light rail lines.

Light Rail

Boston's light rail network consists of a 4.2 km branch of the Red subway line known as the Ashmont -Mattapan line and a four line Green Line network. The Ashmont Line uses old PCC cars and opened in 1929. It is the only Boston rail line to run through a cemetary. It said that when the moon is full, Ted Kennedy can be seen in a conductor's uniform waking down the aisle and smiling genteely at dazed passengers.


A Subway Dream - Unrealistic subway expansion plans, no doubt from ssome deluded metrophiles

The entire Green Line is 25.4mi (40.64km) in length.

B Branch, from Boston College to Kenmore: 4.19mi (6.7km)
C Branch, from Cleveland Circle to Kenmore: 2.9mi (4.64km)
D Branch, from Riverside to Kenmore: 9.74mi (15.58km)
E Branch, from Heath Street to Copley: 0.95mi (1.52km)

Distance from Kenmore to Lechmere: 3.85mi (6.16km)
Distance from Copley to Lechmere: 2.88mi (4.6km)

An expansion plan to extend the Green Line from Lechmere to northwest Boston is underway, with construction expected to begin soon.

Boston also features a partially underground bus rapid transit line known as the Silver Line.
