Update on the Orange Line
Posted on December 30, 2022
Earlier this week, during a routine inspection, the MBTA identified a failure in an electrical grounding component on an Orange Line vehicle.
As stated previously, all Orange Line vehicles have been inspected and repairs are underway for those vehicles experiencing the electrical problem.
Currently, the T is operating eight Orange Line train sets (48 cars) for a headway of 12-14 minutes, two train sets (12 cars) fewer than the scheduled number of vehicles required to meet our schedule.
As the MBTA continues its inspections and performs necessary repairs, Orange Line riders will continue to experience longer headways.
First Night visitors should plan for additional travel time.
