At a news conference at Mattapan Station, Governor Baker, Mayor Walsh, and MBTA representatives announced plans for a new M line, to run from Mattapan to Roslindale Square. The new line, to be completed by 2021, will connect with the new light-rail service on the Needham Line between Forest Hills and a new station on the Riverside Line, where double-track wye will be built.
