MBTA
BOSTON — The third and final scheduled public hearing about the future of Boston’s historic PCC streetcars will be held next week. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has been holding meetings in communities along the Ashmont-Mattapan High Speed Line to gather public input about the route’s future.

Earlier this year, MBTA announced it would spend $7.9 million to keep its 10-car fleet going for at least another decade. However, the agency is also looking at eventually rebuilding or replacing the entire fleet.

During the first meeting held on April 4 at the Mattapan library, local residents and elected officials showed their support for the historic streetcars, the Dorchester Reporter reports.

The final meeting will be held on April 24 at the Lower Mills Public Library in Dorchester.
