The Fall/Winter schedule maintains the same frequent weekday service introduced this spring, with a few changes to train times in order to factor in slippery rail and snow.
The bike policy has also been updated:
bikes are no longer accepted on board trains arriving in Boston between 6:30 am and 10:00 am or departing Boston between 3:30 pm and 7:00 pm.
Weekend service remains the same and busing continues:
-between West Gloucester and Rockport on the Rockport Line to allow for work on the Gloucester drawbridge.
-between Littleton/495 and Wachusett on the Fitchburg Line to facilitate Positive Train Control Implementation work.
