After a careful review of the most recent information from the National Weather Service, the MBTA has decided to suspend all modes of service Sunday, August 28th. For The RIDE, only trips of a necessary medical nature will be made.
A RIDE customer, who meets this criteria, should contact his/her specific provider. With severe winds, heavy rain, and flooding forecast for metropolitan Boston, this decision has been made with the safety of customers and employees being the MBTA's top priority at all times. 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 at the start of Monday morning's commute.
As part of the T's strong commitment to public safety, buses will be on stand by to assist in any evacuations that may be necessary throughout the region.
The MBTA apologizes for any inconvenience, and asks for the public's patience and understanding as we combat the effects of this storm, and work hard toward restoring full service on all modes Monday morning.
