“Green Line extension to Union Square will open March 21, MBTA says” (Boston Globe)

New stations at Lechmere and Union Square will welcome passengers that day, marking a major milestone for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which has been discussing extending the Green Line for decades.

“It’s a really proud moment for the T, a really important moment for the region, and really a symbol that we can do big things and we can get things done,” said MBTA General Manger Steve Poftak at a MBTA board meeting.

The timing of the opening of the separate and much longer Green Line extension branch to Medford, which includes five new stations, was tentatively scheduled for May, but may not start carrying passengers until summer.
