Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority

Boston might be the birthplace of the American Revolution, but did you know it’s also the birthplace of public transit in America?

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), more commonly known as the T, is one of the oldest public transit systems in the United States. It’s also the largest transit system in Massachusetts. 

As a division of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), the MBTA provides subway, bus, Commuter Rail, ferry, and paratransit service to eastern Massachusetts and parts of Rhode Island.
