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

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

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.

Parking 

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.
