MBTA Advisory: This Week: MBTA Service during Public Demonstrations

Posted on June 1, 2020

Sunday evening, May 31, public safety and law enforcement personnel limited access to certain sections of the subway system in the Government Center, Boston Common, Tufts Medical Center, and Copley Square areas and diverted area bus routes due to incidents involving looting and fires. These decisions were made in the interest of public safety and to protect MBTA infrastructure. 
 
In the event further demonstrations are planned that may affect the safe operation of the MBTA, service adjustments will be made and communicated to customers through T-Alerts and social media. Service adjustments will remain in place until law enforcement deems it safe to reopen stations and resume service routes.

The MBTA appreciates the cooperation of our customers concerning any service changes that may be necessary based on the guidance of law enforcement.

Customers are reminded that face coverings are required on buses, subways, and other vehicles in the system. In addition, MBTA modes already have limited service schedules due to the COVID-19 situation. For full information on current MBTA service, please visit mbta.com/coronavirus.
