Service Alerts For Lowell Line CloseView
Shuttle buses, making all stops, will replace all weekend service on the Lowell Line from August 5th through October 1st due to the installation of PTC.
The MBTA will install federally mandated Positive Train Control (PTC) systems along the Lowell Line to improve safety by reducing train collisions and derailments. This work will require weekend shutdowns on the entire line from August 5 through October 1. To help passengers travel between Boston and Lowell, the MBTA is running ADA accessible bus shuttles (with WiFi and restroom facilities) that will make stops at every Commuter Rail station.
Lowell bus shuttle tickets are $4 one-way, and monthly passes will be accepted. Tickets can be purchased on-board, at the North Station Ticket Office, or at the Charlie van outside North Station on the corner of Haverhill and Causeway streets.
Station Issue (Ongoing)
Access to the east entrance of North Station is available through a covered walkway. Legends Way is closed to pedestrian access.
Customers are advised that the pedestrian route for customers transferring from the Green and Orange Line exits at Causeway and Beverly St into North Station Commuter Rail will be moved slightly to accommodate ongoing construction work.
After crossing Causeway St, pedestrians will use a protected walkway along the east side of Legends Way, directly abutting Portal Park. The walkway will include a barrier and kick-plate for blind and low vision passengers.
As an alternative, customers may consider utilizing the west exit from North Station Commuter Rail due to congestion.
