Description:

 

This “layer” is composed of a couple of feature classes with several ArcGIS layer files (.lyr) set up to draw the appropriate mass transit theme. This was done rather than create a new feature class containing redundant data. The Railroads layer includes commuter rail lines as well as the MBTA transit lines. The Transit Stops layer contains rapid transit stops and commuter rail stations

 

The data layers represent public transportation routes and stops within the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) public transit system. The layers were developed by the Massachusetts Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) and are based on data provided by the MBTA. The layers are from the MassGIS MBTA Rapid Transit and Trains layers. The data covers the entire MBTA Rapid Transit system and the Commuter Rail within a ten mile radius of Newton. There are layer files available to just draw the Newton section of the system.
