Service Change Ongoing
MBTA service levels have been increased in the interest of the health and safety of our riders and employees. All riders must use face coverings when on the MBTA.

Lowell Line Service Changes

To support the Green Line Extension, work on the Lowell Line includes:

  • Aligning new Commuter Rail tracks
  • Construction of a new railroad bridge at Washington Street in Somerville
  • Added safety and monitoring with Positive Train Control (PTC) for the Commuter Rail

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

Shuttle Service During Coronavirus

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all riders are required to wear face coverings and should leave extra space between themselves and other riders. Shuttle capacity is limited to 20 people.

Between Anderson/Woburn and North Station

Graphic of the Lowell Line, showing bus shuttles making all stops between Anderson/Woburn and North Station, except for Mishawum. There is also an express shuttle from Anderson/Woburn directly to North Station.

Weekends Through August 2020

Shuttles run all day Saturday and Sunday.

Each scheduled train will be replaced by both a local shuttle and an express shuttle:

  • Local shuttles will make all stops, except Mishawum.
  • Express shuttles will run directly between North Station and Anderson/Woburn.

Please note that shuttles cannot accommodate bicycles.

    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.
