The FY06 – FY10 Capital Investment Program
MBTA’s Capital Investment Program (CIP) provides an understanding of the Authority's planned capital expenditures for a five-year planning horizon. This document describes the MBTA's infrastructure and the capital needs to maintain the system, outlines ongoing and programmed capital projects, and details planned projects to expand the transportation network. The CIP is a financially constrained document - only capital projects the MBTA has the capacity to fund are included in the "Funded Projects" sections of this document. The CIP classifies capital efforts into structured projects and programmatic areas by asset type, mode, and line to provide the reader with an easily understood and easily followed resource guide to the MBTA's capital program.
Each year, the MBTA reviews and updates this rolling five-year plan, and submits the document to extensive public review, including review by the MBTA Advisory Board and approval by the Board of Directors. This year, public comments on the Draft CIP were received throughout a six-week comment period that ended December 31, 2004. The MBTA held eight public hearings at various locations throughout our service district to provide members of the public an opportunity to voice their concerns, recommendations, and input on the Draft CIP. Thanks to all who participated either at the hearings or through postal mail and email.
We took all public comments received into careful consideration as we prepared a final FY06-FY10 CIP.
The MBTA’s Board of Directors officially approved and adopted the final CIP at its meeting in March 2005. In the
coming months, we will submit
to the Massachusetts State Legislature
The FY06 - FY10 CIP is available by clicking on the links below. Due to the size of the document, it is also available as three smaller files.
Accessibility Projects in the FY06-10 CIP
The FY06-10 CIP allocates many millions of dollars to capital projects with substantial accessibility benefits. The purchase of hundreds of low-floor buses and subway cars, the reconstruction of stations, and the installation of new elevators will make the MBTA much more accessible to customers in the coming years. Follow the link above to learn more about the accessibility improvements in the FY06-10 CIP and in the MBTA's future, or click below to view the brochure as one document.
