MBTA Red Line Third Rail Work, August 2015Beginning Saturday, August 29th, and continuing on selected weekends through the remainder of the summer, Red Line service between JFK/UMass and Quincy will be temporarily suspended to allow workers to make the subway more resilient to harsh winter weather conditions.

On weekends when workers will be replacing third rail and switch heaters, Red Line service between JFK/UMass and Quincy will be suspended in both directions from start to end of service. Shuttle bus service will be provided, serving JFK/UMass and Quincy stations.
