Several MBTA Services Suspended Following Marathon Explosion

MBTA T service in downtown Boston is in varying stages of suspension as emergency crews respond to the aftermath of at least two explosions at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon. The MBTA’s Green Line service between Kenmore and Park Street stations has been shut down as of 3:30 p.m. today, although Green Line service will continue to run between Lechmere and North Station, according to MBTA.com. Both the Green Line’s B and C services have been temporarily suspended, and the D line is only running from Riverside to Fenway. The Green Line’s E service is still running between Northeastern and Brigham Circle. Customers who need service between Brigham Circle and Health Street are being asked to use the Route 39 bus. In addition, the Red Line is bypassing Park Street Station at this time, with the Red and Orange lines bypassing Downtown Crossing Station. Currently, only the Blue and Silver lines and the Red Line to Mattapan are unaffected by the incident. Customers who need transportation in the Back Bay and downtown areas should use the Orange Line to Back Bay and Chinatown stations and the Red Line to South Station, according to the MBTA website.

MBTA Service Suspended Friday Afternoon

The MBTA will close down at 3:30 p.m. Friday because of the winter storm, according to an alert posted Thursday evening on the transit authority’s winter advisory page. “Due to a severe winter storm forecasted to hit the MBTA’s service area, the MBTA will suspend all modes of service effective at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8,” the advisory states. Regular MBTA service will operate “with significant delays” from the start of service Friday until the 3:30 p.m. cutoff, MBTA officials wrote. “With severe winds and heavy snow forecasted for metropolitan Boston, this decision has been made with the safety of customers and employees being the MBTA’s top priority at all times,” according to the advisory. “The suspension of service will also allow MBTA and MBCR personnel to concentrate all of their efforts on making sure the transit system, from subway to bus to commuter rail, is up and running as soon as possible.” South End residents can visit MBTA.com to view all service impacts and other information and sign up here to receive T alerts by cell phone.
