  About the Tier 2 Alternatives: In Summer 2022, the project team identified several potential options for extending Silver Line service from Chelsea into Everett and on to neighboring communities. The Tier 2 Alternatives are grouped into two categories: those that are considered extensions of the SL3 service and those that are being evaluated as a new service, referred to as SL6. The SL3 extensions connect Chelsea to the Orange Line while the SL6 Alternatives connect Everett and Chelsea to Kendall or Downtown Boston.

  You can learn more about these alternatives before the meeting in our Alternatives Fact Sheet, available in
