A new age of transit oriented development is underway in Metropolitan Boston. From downtown subway stops to the far reaches of the commuter rail lines, transit station areas are seeing a burst of housing and commercial development, bringing new benefits to the region’s economy, environment, and transportation system.

It provides easy access to demographic, economic, transportation, and development information for over 300 existing and planned MBTA transit station areas.
