The MBTA Late Night Pilot Program was started last year beginning the night of Friday, March 28, 2014.  Since then, the MBTA has run service 90 minutes longer on all subway and Key Bus Routes on Friday and Saturday nights.  Ridership from the start of the program through January of 2015 totaled approximately 1.1 million boardings.

MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack and MBTA General Manager and MassDOT Rail & Transit Administrator Dr. Beverly Scott earlier this month announced that the MBTA Late Night Pilot Program will be extended through June 19, 2015 in order to allow time for public input before making a final determination regarding the future of late-night service.
