Saturday Update on MBTA Services
Posted on March 3, 2018
The Green Line D-Riverside branch has resumed service after MBTA crews made repairs to power wires and track that had been damaged by a tree in yesterday's nor’easter. The previously planned shuttles between St. Mary’s Street and Kenmore on the C-Cleveland Circle branch and between Brookline Hills and Kenmore on the D-Riverside branch have been canceled. Regular service is running on all Green Line branches for the rest of the weekend.
Several Commuter Rail lines are experiencing delays resulting from flooding. The Newburyport/Rockport, Middleborough/Lakeville, Kingston/Plymouth, and Greenbush lines are experiencing delays ranging from 15 to 45 minutes. The Greenbush Line delays are expected to continue through Sunday.
Customers on all lines will be notified of individual train delays via T-Alerts and Twitter (@MBTA_CR and @MBTA). Floodwaters have affected signal systems, requiring trains to run at reduced speeds to ensure safety.
Charlestown Ferry service will resume tomorrow, Sunday March 4.
Hingham and Hull Ferry service, which does not run on weekends during the winter, will resume Monday morning, March 5.
The Wollaston Station bus shuttle will return to its normal routing between North Quincy, Wollaston, and Quincy Center Sunday morning as well. On Friday and Saturday, the shuttle had been shortened to omit Quincy Center due to flooding on Newport Avenue.
The planned service disruption between North Quincy and Braintree on Sunday evening from 9 PM to the end of service will still take place. Bus shuttles will replace Red Line trains between these stations, making all stops. This will allow work on the Wollaston Station reconstruction and Quincy Center garage demolition.
At Aquarium on the Blue Line, the Atlantic Avenue entrance is expected to reopen Sunday morning after being cleaned of debris. Trains continue to serve the station as the State Street entrance remains open.
The elevators at the Atlantic Avenue entrance that were severely damaged by saltwater flooding in January’s storm will remain closed for repairs and customers should use the elevators at the State Street entrance.
All parking lots have all reopened after yesterday’s flooding.
