The Silver Line Extension Alternatives Analysis (SLX) team is hosting an online feedback form that will be closed on January 31. If you haven't yet provided your comments and suggestions, we urge you to do so at your earliest convenience. MassDOT and the MBTA are seeking riders’ input in order to evaluate the Tier 2 Alternatives.
About the Tier 2 Alternatives
In Summer 2022, the project team identified several potential options for extending Silver Line service from Chelsea into Everett and on to neighboring communities.
The Tier 2 Alternatives are grouped into two categories: those that are considered extensions of the SL3 service and those that are being evaluated as a new service, referred to as SL6. The SL3 extensions connect Chelsea to the Orange Line, while the SL6 Alternatives connect Everett and Chelsea to Kendall or Downtown Boston.
In addition, at the December 13 meeting, MassDOT presented and discussed the evaluation results and sought feedback on the alternatives. A recording of the meeting and the meeting presentation are available on the event page.
Share Your Input by January 31
There is still time to share your feedback about the Tier 2 Alternatives. Please share your feedback through the online feedback form before January 31. The feedback form is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Haitian Creole.
