In addition to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA), which provides public transportation to the Greater Boston area, public transportation in Massachusetts is provided by a network of 15 Regional Transit Authorities (RTAs) enabled in 1974 with the passage of Chapter 161B of the Massachusetts General Laws. RTA's are body politics and political subdivisions of the Commonwealth. Chapter 161B defines the overall structure and functioning of MVRTA.  The Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority (MVRTA) was established on October 11, 1974.  It was one of the original transit authorities created by Chapter 161B if the Massachusetts General Laws.
