T to triple three-car trolleys; Even on the E
The MBTA will expand the number of three-car trolleys on the Green Line on Monday - and will start running them on the E branch for the first time, which also means the return of triple-trolley service to Lechmere.
The T restored some three-car service on non-E lines last year. The expansion means the number of tripled-up trains will increase from 13 to 32 on weekdays.
In a statement, T General Manager Richard Davey said:
As I've talked with Green Line customers over the past year, train capacity is an issue that is frequently raised. We have received that message loud and clear, and the MBTA is responding.
