RollSign Magazine

RollSign, our bi-monthly transit news magazine, is sent to all of our members and subscribers across the country and the world. Issues feature current events, historical articles, and colorful photos of New England’s public transit systems, contributed by readers and our staff. Plus, one issue per year is dedicated to a complete, updated roster of Boston’s MBTA system!

Publication Timeline

RollSign is a magazine of record, and is meant to cover what happened during every two-month period. So for example, the May/June issue covers the events of May and June, and is produced and published AFTER the month of June. Down the road, this makes it very easy to find specific events in past issues!


RollSign Magazine is sent to all Regular, Intermediate and Associate members in good standing. Separate subscriptions to RollSign are also available for $16 per year.
