Organization Chart


The Executive Office of Transportation (EOT) was established by the Massachusetts Legislature to develop, implement, and coordinate transportation policies and projects statewide. To carry out that mandate, EOT oversees and participates in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of freight and passenger rail, local transit services, water transportation, general aviation programs and road/bridge systems. These services are chiefly operated by agencies and authorities under EOT's jurisdiction, such as the Massachusetts Highway Department, Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and the Regional Transit Authorities (RTA).

EOT is charged with the responsibility of providing efficient, safe, clean and cost-effective transportation systems and services. The office carries out this vital function by overseeing the design, operation and construction of superior facilities, and by developing and implementing quality programs and services for its highways, mass transit systems, railroads, airports and watercraft. While EOT places a premium on providing the highest level of service on a daily basis, it is constantly engaged in comprehensive long-range planning and analysis to ensure the continuation of its commitment to excellence.
