Mattapan Line Service Changes

As part of the Capital Acceleration Plan, we’ve expedited work on our intersection upgrades project to help bring you a safer, more reliable MBTA experience. Service shutdowns on 4 additional weekends in 2019 will help us complete work faster—5 months earlier than originally planned.

Shuttles will replace trolley service while we upgrade the intersection at Central Ave on the Mattapan Line. This project will make it easier for pedestrians, cars, and cyclists to cross the tracks.
