MBTA New Locomotive, North Station, April 16, 2014The MBTA has issued a Service Alert:  No Weekend Service on the commuter rail Fitchburg Main Line for the period from April 25th, 2015 through November 22nd, 2015.

The suspension of weekend service will allow construction of major improvements on the Fitchburg Main Line to continue through the 2015 construction season. This 3rd year of the Commuter Rail Improvement Project will continue improvements to track, signal, bridges, and stations to reduce trip times and increase service reliability on the line. Substitute busing will not be provided.

Normal Weekend (Sunday) service will operate on the Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving weekends.

Prior to the extended weekend shutdown program for 2015 there will be two (2) weekends where bus service between Littleton Station and Concord Station will be employed on the line to allow for Track and Signal improvements to support the upcoming bridge and track work schedule for 2015.

Busing between Littleton Station and Concord Station will support existing weekend service on the weekends of March 28th-29th and April 11th-12th, 2015.

Commuters seeking additional information should check the project website for updates. Please refer to MBTA service updates for additional information on train schedules.

We apologize for any inconvenience these service suspensions may cause. Customers can look forward to significant service improvements once this improvement project is completed.

Questions may be directed to the MBTA Fitchburg Project Email at FitchburgProject@MBTA.com and MBTA Fitchburg Project Hotline: 617-721-7506.
