Stay Up to Date on Service Changes
What to Expect
Depending on the severity of a storm, T service may be affected. Check out your preferred mode of travel for more details.
Bus and Silver Line
Buses may operate with reduced service, slower speeds, or delays during and after snowstorms.
Some bus routes, especially those that operate on narrow streets or hills, have alternate snow routes.
MBTA crews clear snow and ice from stops along key bus routes within 24 hours of the end of snowfall.
Subway and Mattapan Trolley
The T may operate with reduced service, slower speeds, or delays during and after snowstorms.
Routes that operate above ground can be affected by downed trees or power lines, frozen tracks and signals, disabled trains, and other weather-related issues. Give yourself extra time for your commute.
In extreme cases, service may be replaced with bus shuttles or suspended altogether.
The Commuter Rail may operate with reduced service, slower speeds, or delays during and after snowstorms.
Before reduced service takes effect, a new schedule for the line will be posted on the Commuter Rail alerts page. Plan ahead and give yourself extra time for your commute.
In extreme cases, service may be suspended altogether.
Ferry service may be reduced or suspended if weather conditions, especially winds, warrant.
If ferries aren’t running, customers can take the following alternate routes from downtown Boston:
- Hingham: Red Line to 220 bus OR Commuter Rail Greenbush Line
- Hull: Red Line to 220 bus to 714 bus
- Logan Airport: Blue Line or Silver Line 1
- Charlestown: 93 bus
The RIDE may operate with delays or reduced service during and after snowstorms.
Winter weather may impact driving conditions, and snow accumulation may affect drivers' ability safely access locations not plowed or shoveled.
Call The RIDE's dispatch center for updates and information about your scheduled trip.
MBTA crews work throughout storms to keep parking lots clear, but snowfall may result in fewer spaces in lots overall.
Plan ahead and give yourself extra time to find alternate parking if needed.
Cars parked outside of designated spaces or left overnight may be ticketed or towed.
