Work includes:

Shuttle schedules are subject to change, dependent on weather, city-wide events, and construction progress.

Shuttle Stops

no service Why do shuttles skip Beaconsfield?

Due to narrow roads near Beaconsfield, shuttles cannot safely stop there. We recommend:

accessible Shuttle Accessibility

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.


Trains Run at Reduced Speed

After completing track work, we typically implement speed restrictions while we monitor the tracks to ensure that ballast and other materials have settled properly. Restrictions are lifted after we get confirmation from an engineer, which can sometimes take several days.
