May 31, 2022
The Fiscal Year 2023-2027 MBTA Capital Improvement Plan includes all planned capital investments over the next five years.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) Fiscal Year 2023-2027 MBTA Capital Improvement Plan (FY23-27 MBTA CIP) was approved by the board of directors.  

The FY23-27 MBTA CIP includes more than 500 unique capital projects to modernize, expand and increase the reliability of the MBTA transit network.  

“With the goal of improving reliability, modernizing the system, expanding capacity and the network, and continuing to make critical safety improvements, the MBTA’s five-year CIP is an important document that guides our investment planning,” said MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak. “I thank the board for approving our CIP, and I thank our riders and the public for participating in this public process and letting us know what kinds of capital investments they’d like to see the MBTA prioritize for investment.”  

The FY23-27 MBTA CIP is available on MBTA's website and includes an overview of the authority’s capital planning process, summaries of investment programs, summaries of investments by mode and the full list of capital projects. 

A short-term, financially constrained investment program updated annually, the FY23-27 MBTA CIP is driven by the following goals:  

  • Improve the reliability of the MBTA’s transit system and modernize existing assets to accommodate current or anticipated growth. 
  • Make targeted investments in the expansion of the transportation network to increase capacity or provide riders with more options across transit modes.
