THURSDAY AND FRIDAY SERVICE

The Red Line will operate extra trains to JFK/UMass Station, near Columbia Point in Dorchester. 
From 5:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Thursday and 7:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Friday, additional buses will operate between JFK/UMass Station and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library as supplemental service to the T’s regular Route 8 bus service.

Heavy passenger volume is expected and customers are urged to purchase round-trip fares in advance to expedite their return trips. 
If circumstances warrant it, Red Line service will be available after the T’s regular operating hours.
