Red-Blue Connector


Tell MassDOT and the FMCB: NO MORE BROKEN PROMISES, NO MORE MISSED OPPORTUNITIES!

Add your name to this e-petition to tell MassDOT and the MBTA to build the "Red to Blue Connector" as a subway extension and not as a pedestrian walkway. Additionally, please show up to the MassDOT & MBTA Board Meeting on Monday, September 17 at noon to comment in person even if you have already signed the petition!


We, the undersigned, wish to voice our displeasure at the treatment of the "Red to Blue Connector" or the extension of the Blue Line to Charles/MGH in the draft Focus 2040 visioning plan. This has been a missing link in the MBTA's subway for far too long. It will most importantly serve the mobility needs of the environmental justice communities of East Boston, Winthrop, and Revere along the Blue Line, as well as communities along the Red Line from Cambridge & Somerville to Boston, Quincy & Braintree. The Blue Line extension would also be a game changer for mobility in the region, providing a strong new link to Logan Airport (now handling 38 million passengers annually) and an important new link to Mass General Hospital. A pedestrian connection means little to a person with limited mobility, parents with young children, or a weary traveler. The Commonwealth shirked its responsibility once before, we should not miss this opportunity to right that wrong and build the Red to Blue Connector as intended. We hope that you will replace the reference to a pedestrian walkway with a commitment to extend the Blue Line to Charles/MGH. Thank you for your time & consideration.

    A walkway wouldn’t be any help for disabled people like me. We need a REAL connection!

    Build an extension of the Blue Line to the Red Line at Charles/MGH. The region needs this fast, accessible, and convenient link between the two transit lines.
