Due to the Longfellow Bridge Project, shuttle buses will make all station stops between Park Street and Kendall/MIT Stations on the following weekends:
Saturday and Sunday, August 10-11, August 24-25, October 19-20, Oct. 26-27, and Nov. 2-3.
The bus route is shown on the map above, with affected stops: Kendall/MIT Station, Charles/MGH Station, and Park St. Station. Normal service will resume for the start of service on Mondays.
The project includes replacing the MBTA Red Line tracks. The work will change Red Line service for a total of 25 weekends during the three and half year project. To allow space for bus travel in each direction, Boston-bound traffic will be detoured during the Red Line diversions using Memorial Drive and Land Boulevard to reach Leverett Circle.
During weekend busing operations, bicyclists will be asked to walk their bicycles across the bridge on the sidewalk for safety reasons.
