Thursday, April 4, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Lower Mills Branch Public Library, 27 Richmond St, Dorchester. MassDOT and the MBTA will present the results of the study and solicit feedback from members of the public. Two years ago, the MBTA sought and received public input on the future of the Mattapan Line. The MBTA considered immediate and long term needs and as a result, $7.9M has been invested to upgrade the existing system and vehicle fleet to ensure continued service to the community for the next 8-10 years.
