Fitchburg Line Service Changes
We're upgrading Positive Train Control for a safer Commuter Rail. With no trains running, crews can access the Fitchburg Line 24/7. This allows us to get the work done more quickly.
Service changes are subject to change, dependent on weather, city-wide events, and construction progress.
Wachusett – Littleton
Weekends, July – December, 2021
Shuttles will run all day Saturday and Sunday, and will follow the Fitchburg Line schedule.
This service change allows for crews to work on the Positive Train Control (PTC) project.
Additional dates may be added as work progresses.
Shuttles are accessible to people with disabilities. Some bus shuttles may be provided by third-party contractors and will look different than MBTA buses. Some may provide accessibility via a lift in the back rather than a ramp in front.
