The Arborway Committee, a transit advocacy group, recently announced that it has released a report advocating for the extension of Green Line streetcar service to Hyde Square.

Meanwhile, the Boston Redevelopment Authority (BRA) will ask the MBTA to do exactly that, according to an article posted today by Banker & Tradesman. The BRA did not have an immediate response to a request for comment.

The E branch of the Green Line formerly ran all the way to Forest Hills Station. Service was reduced in 1985 and today Heath Street is the end of the line.

The Arborway Committee, which has been advocating for the return of Green Line service through central JP since the 1980s, made the announcement of the report during the State of the Neighborhood meeting Feb. 26. It said the report could be found on its website arborway.org. But that site is currently under construction.
