Strange why they would need to do a survey. Why wouldn't they just estimate the demand based on current overnight ridership?

Who is responsible for overnight service in Boston? Strange why they would have a totally separate agency just for that...

Like everything with the MBTA, it is a result of graft.

Unfortunately not much can be done except abolishing MBTA and replacing it with something else, which is obviously not happening.

More CRRC trains for Boston Red Line
Tuesday, December 13, 2016

MBTA placed an initial order with CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles (now part of CRRC) in 2014 for 132 vehicles to replace the Red Line’s 1500 and 1600 series cars, which date from 1969-1970, in a deal which also included 152 new vehicles for the Orange Line

This is only for Orange and Red lines, yes? Any plans to replace blue line cars?

I believe the blue line cars were just replaced a few years ago so there isn't a need to replace them. The 700 series fully replaced the 600 series cars in 2011 when the last 600 series cars were retired and are still in great condition.
