Boston's current Tube map as of June 2019

The Tube map is a map of the Boston Underground, Docklands Light Railway, and Boston Overground networks. Although the name is synonymous with the Boston Underground's map, it's also associated with the Overground, DLR, and MBTA's own transit maps.

Map Repository

Below is a repository of all of Boston's tube maps for its various transit systems. It shows the evolution of the system.

Boston Underground

Underground Electric Railways of Boston (UERB)

The UERB, who bought out most urban railways in Boston, designed the first joint-line map in 1902. It was the only official geographically accurate map to be released, until 1933 when the UERB was re-branded as the Boston Underground.

1933 Map

The 1933 map, the first official tube map, was the first to condense the lines into a non-geographically accurate map, allowing easier navigation for the rider. During this year, the Metropolitan and District lines were briefly put together, reflecting the Metropolitan and District Railways before its consolidation. The map also set a new color scheme which would be reverted by the next map.
