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

Following weekend track work, we typically implement speed restrictions as a safety precaution. These restrictions can last for several days so we can monitor for proper settlement and consolidation of new track.
