About the Project

Timeline: 2018
Status: Planning


Beginning September 2, 2018, the MBTA will offer expanded bus service from 10 PM – 3 AM every night. The expansion includes additional evening trips, later scheduling, and route variations that include stops in areas where service is most needed.

Late night bus service will run as a pilot program, and the MBTA will measure ridership to determine if the program should become permanent within the next year.

  • Service available after 2 AM in Dorchester, Roxbury, Charlestown, Everett, East Boston, and Lynn
