Alternative Travel Options During Blue Line and Commuter Rail Closures

Updated on April 18, 5:10 PM

There will be overlapping Blue Line and Commuter Rail closures in April. Transit Ambassadors and other MBTA personnel will be available to assist riders. We recommend planning for extra travel time.

During these closures, we'll address 16 speed restrictions in the corridor as part of the Track Improvement Plan. We'll perform additional work at each of the impacted stations, including lighting repairs, painting and deep cleaning.
