The Green Line is a light rail system run by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) in the Boston, Massachusetts, metropolitan area.
It is the oldest Boston subway line, and with tunnel sections dating from 1897, the oldest in America.
It is the longest branch, ending in Newton at Riverside.
The Tremont Street Subway – the oldest subway tunnel in North America – opened its first section on September 1, 1897, to take streetcars off overcrowded downtown streets; it was extended five times over the next five decades.
It continues west in the Boylston Street Subway to Kenmore Square.
The Green Line tunnels through Downtown Boston and the Back Bay are collectively referred to as the Central Subway.
The streetcar system peaked in size around 1930 and was gradually replaced with trackless trolleys and buses, with cuts as late as 1985.
A new branch opened on a converted commuter rail line in 1959; the Green Line Extension project will add two new branches into Somerville and Medford in 2021.
