BOSTON (CBS) — The MBTA is nearly tripling the number of three-car trains on the Green Line starting Monday. The E branch of the line, that runs along Huntington Avenue, is also getting its first ever tri-car train.

The number of three-car trains is increasing from 13 to 32. MBTA General Manager Richard Davey said the increase in cars will make commuters more comfortable.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens talks with passengers.

“As I’ve talked with Green Line customers over the past year, train capacity is an issue that is frequently raised,” said  Davey. “We have received that message loud and clear, and the MBTA is responding.”

200,000 passenger trips are made on the Green Line each weekday. The MBTA first introduced three-car trains to the Green Line last year.
