Winter Weather Information

Winter Weather Update - January 28, 2015

All MBTA services, including rapid transit, buses, and commuter lines, will continue running normal operations on Thursday morning at their usual start times with the exception of the Mattapan Trolley. Buses will replace Mattapan Trolleys from start to end of service tomorrow, January 29, 2015, while the MBTA continues working to restore service. Some buses may continue to operate on Snow Routes while roads are restored to safe and operable conditions. Commuters should continue to be aware of icy conditions and possible frigid temperatures.

Commuter Rail customers should be aware that some of the more than 130 parking lots will have less capacity than normal, as crews continue to plow and remove snow all around the system. Because RIDE service will be affected by road conditions, paratransit customers are urged to stay in contact with their specific service provider. Ferry service is expected to operate on a regular weekday schedule.

Customers are strongly advised to plan for extra travel time, dress appropriately, and to check for the most current service information before starting their commutes. Service information can be found at the MBTA's winter resource hub: Customers are also urged to check T-Alerts regularly for updates or to join our 93,000 followers on Twitter @MBTA. For Commuter Rail updates, we ask commuters to follow the MBTA Commuter Rail on Twitter @MBTA_CR.

MBTA personnel will do everything possible to minimize disruptions but we ask for patience as we work to safely recover in the storm’s aftermath.

In order to enhance snow removal efforts, customers are prohibited from parking overnight at any MBTA station parking lots until 5:00 AM on Thursday, January 29, 2015; during this time, garage rates will return to the normal daily/overnight rate.

The parking snow day policy is in effect for Wednesday, January 28, 2015 and will remain in effect until the end of service, January 29, 2015. Please check the MBTA Winter Parking page for more information.
