Boston, MA (MBTA Subway Lines, 2006)

The MBTA Rapid Transit layers represent the five subway, streetcar and bus lines in the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s rapid transit rail network and stations/stops. The five ‘T’ lines - Blue, Green, Orange, Red and Silver - are represented with linework in the layer MBTA_ARC. Stations are contained in a point feature class named MBTA_NODE.
