BOSTON — The MBTA is preparing for an upcoming winter weather system anticipated to bring snowfall to parts of the MBTA service area tonight and into tomorrow morning.

The MBTA will operate regular weekday service on the Red, Orange, Blue, and Green Lines. The Mattapan Trolley Line will be replaced with dedicated bus shuttles beginning at the start of service tomorrow, servicing all stations. The regular Wollaston Station shuttle that operates all day to and from North Quincy, Wollaston, and Quincy Center due to Wollaston’s closure will continue to operate as planned. The evening-only shuttle buses that operate between North Quincy and Braintree Stations on the Red Line Braintree branch beginning at 9 PM through the end of service are cancelled tonight, January 16, and tomorrow night, January 17.

Regular bus service will operate, though delays may occur and bus routes that have "Snow Routes" may operate on their designated Snow Route. To find a list of buses with Snow Routes, customers are urged to visit www.mbta.com/winter where these routes are listed.

The MBTA Commuter Rail will operate a regular schedule, though passengers are urged to stay connected by visiting Commuter Rail T-alerts on the MBTA website, following @MBTA_CR and @MBTA on Twitter, and signing up for T-Alerts.

Regular ferry service will operate on Wednesday, January 17.

Customers are encouraged to use caution on slippery platforms and bus stops and to stay safe in cold air temperatures. As delays and other service changes may occur, customers are urged to connect with the MBTA by visiting the MBTA website's Winter Weather page, signing up for and checking T-Alerts, downloading the Transit app, and following the T on Twitter @MBTA as well as the Commuter Rail at @MBTA_CR.
