Governor Baker Says GLX Still on Track to Bring Slow, Unreliable Service to Somerville by 2021

SOMERVILLE, MA – During a press conference earlier this morning, Governor Charlie Baker confirmed that the Green Line Extension, or GLX, was still on track to deliver slow, unreliable service to Somerville by 2021. The Governor reassured city residents, saying “I am proud to announce that construction of the Green Line Extension is proceeding on schedule, and that residents of Union Square and East Somerville will soon have the same infrequent, subpar T access that other parts of the Boston metro area currently enjoy.” He proudly added that, once it opens in 2021, riders on the Green Line Extension will finally get to experience derailed trains, fires, and winter track closures just like any of the hundreds of thousands of commuters who currently rely on the woefully underfunded MBTA subway system to get to and from work. When asked about the proposed Red-Blue connector project, the Governor refused to give a date for when that project would be completed, if ever, but did admit that it would be useful for commuters to be able to go straight from sluggish, intermittent service on the blue line, to sluggish, intermittent service on the red line.
