  • The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) operates local buses in East Boston, Boston, Massachusetts, connecting to the Blue Line at Maverick or Wood Island. Additionally, the Silver Line SL1 bus and 171 (early morning only) serve Logan Airport, and the 424, 434, 441, 442, 448, 449, 450, 455 and 459 express buses pass through on Route 1A on their way between North Shore points and downtown. Some of these routes run through Chelsea. The 111 also serves Chelsea without entering East Boston. The 426 and 428 express buses pass through Chelsea on the Northeast Expressway. The 119 runs in neither city, only running in Revere, but is considered part of the same group. The routes numbered from 111 to 119 were once run by the Eastern Massachusetts Street Railway as streetcar lines of their Chelsea Division. That division was taken over by the Boston Elevated Railway (BERy, the MBTA's predecessor) on June 10, 1936. This was soon after the old Mystic River Bridge (since replaced by the Tobin Bridge) was closed to streetcars, with those lines last running January 12, 1935 (into the subway at the Canal Street Portal and to the Brattle Loop). The next day, the lines were cut back to Chelsea Square and a bus route was instituted over the Mystic River Bridge between Chelsea Square and City Square, where transfer could be made to the Charlestown Elevated. The Logan Shuttle services, run by Massport, connect the Logan Airport terminals to each other, Airport and various other points. Until June 1976, the MBTA operated a single shuttle as the 98 bus.
