The MBTA and Keolis Commuter Services (Keolis), the agency’s operating partner for Commuter Rail, today announced the new Fall/Winter schedule, which will take effect on October 2. All schedules will soon be available online at mbta.com/cr. The Fall/Winter schedule will continue the “clockface” service to offer more consistent service throughout the day. Other adjustments include the extension of late-night service on weekdays and weekends, added peak service, added express service on the Fitchburg Line, construction activity mitigation, and preparation for fall/winter weather.
“We understand how the availability of mass transportation options affects how our riders choose to travel. This fall schedule balances the needs of our customers that rely on Commuter Rail for work, but also now better serves the public with additional late night trains,” said MBTA General Manager and CEO Phillip Eng. “The Commonwealth offers so many diverse places to see and experience, and taking mass transportation has now become even easier.”
“We are pleased to announce a Fall/Winter schedule that improves passenger experience across the Commuter Rail network and brings back late-night service on nearly all lines,” said Abdellah Chajai, CEO and General Manager of Keolis Commuter Services. “With this new schedule, passengers who work non-traditional hours or attend evening events in Boston can access extended late-night weekday and weekend service.”
