MBTA Service for the Weekend of February 17-18

Posted on February 16, 2018

BOSTON—The MBTA expects to operate regularly scheduled weekend service as snow is projected for parts of the area tomorrow night. While the majority of MBTA services will operate regularly scheduled weekend service, the Mattapan Trolley Line will be replaced with dedicated shuttle bus service beginning at approximately 9 PM tomorrow. The MBTA takes this pro-active step to protect the 70-year old trolley cars from weather-related damage.
