What late-night services are available on Friday and Saturday nights until Friday, March 18?
Rapid Transit—the Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Mattapan, and Silver Lines (except SL2)—and some Key Bus Routes. The Key Bus Routes with extended service are Route Nos. 1, 23, 28, 32, 39, 57, 66, 111, and 116/117.
The RIDE paratransit service also operates until approximately 2 a.m. to areas within ¾ mile of all late-night services. Please note that this is only if both the origin of the trip and the destination of the trip are within ¾ mile of bus/subway.
Does the late-night service available until Friday, March 18, operate like other MBTA services?
Service operates as it does during the day, serving the same stations and stops as the normal routes. Regular rapid transit and bus fares are charged on late-night services.
All late-night trips are scheduled and appear on the MBTA website, on phone apps, on Google Transit, and anywhere else that such information is usually available. Real-time information for buses is also available for the late-night service. Real-time information for the Red, Blue, Green, and Orange Lines, including the countdown signs in stations, may not work after 2 a.m. due to current technical limitations.
How frequently will late-night service operate until Friday, March 18?
Extended late-night service operates approximately every 15-20 minutes in most cases. Some corridors served by multiple routes (such as SL4/SL5 and 116/117) have combined service levels of every 15-20 minutes or every 30-40 minutes on unique segments.
