Transportation Secretary James Aloisi and Acting MBTA General Manager William Mitchell today announced additional bus and subway service available over the next three days.  Residents are strongly encouraged to take public transit as they pay their respects to Senator Kennedy. 

THURSDAY AND FRIDAY SERVICE

The Red Line will operate extra trains to JFK/UMass Station, near Columbia Point in Dorchester. 
From 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Thursday and 7:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Friday, additional buses will operate between JFK/UMass Station and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library as supplemental service to the T’s regular Route 8 bus service. 
Commuter Rail will offer additional service as every Old Colony train from the South Shore will make a station stop at JFK/UMass Station.
Heavy passenger volume is expected and customers are urged to purchase round-trip fares in advance to expedite their return trips. 
If circumstances warrant it, Red Line service will be available after the T’s regular operating hours.

SATURDAY SERVICE

While funeral preparations and services are taking place:

The Green Line’s E branch will terminate at Brigham Circle.
Increased bus service will be provided along Huntington Avenue, on the Route 39, while the Green Line is terminating at Brigham Circle. 
The Orange Line will operate extra service to Roxbury Crossing Station, near Mission Hill.
Route 66 buses, which travel along Tremont Street past the Mission Church, will be diverted. 
The Mission Hill Link bus, which normally travels via Tremont Street from Brigham Circle, will not be operating on Saturday. 
Additional bus routes operating through Roxbury Crossing will also be impacted by the nearby traffic.
