MBTA Blue Line Aquarium Station MBTA service is operating on a regular weekday schedule, effective this morning. 

Having already removed more than one hundred trees or large branches from track rights-of-way yesterday, MBTA and MBCR personnel worked through the night clearing the rails and restoring power to signal systems and overhead wires.  The MBTA also worked closely with the City of Boston to prioritize the removal of trees or branches along roads traveled by MBTA buses.
 
Normal service on the Red, Orange, Blue, and Green lines will occur with minimal delays on the D branch due to on-going signal system repairs between Riverside and Newton Centre Stations.  In the event that the signals remain down at the start of service personnel will be in place to institute manual operation.

 All downed trees have been removed from the D line.

 Due to ongoing tree removal actitivities being conducted by the Town of Newton and NStar, the Riverside Parking facility will remain closed.  Customers are urged  to seeking alternative parking at other facilities such as Woodland Station.   Transit Police will be on scene to assist and direct autos.
 
Commuter Rail – Minor signal problems on the Worcester and Fitchburg Lines remain, but are not expected to result in significant delays.

Amtrak is conducting tree removal activities on the Providence line, but no significant delays are expected.
 
All bus, Trackless Trolley will run as scheduled.  Check out the latest on mbta.com.
