MBTA Red Line Countdown Signs, Charles-MGH, December 31, 2013Following the successful Late Night Arts film screenings on Friday and Saturday night, September 26-27, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and MBTA today joined the City of Boston and local food and fashion vendors in announcing Late Night Eats on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway scheduled for this upcoming Saturday night, October 4th.

The two events showcase the new MBTA Extended Late Night Service on Friday and Saturday nights.

Food and fashion trucks scheduled to participate include the following:

Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, Tenoch, the Dining Car, Chicken & Rice Guys, and Cookie Monstah, the Fashion Truck and Secret Ships.

The Greenway can be reached by using the popular MBTA Extended Late Night Service, which began in March and extends hours of service by ninety minutes until approximately 2:30am for Rapid Transit and Key Bus Routes on Friday and Saturday nights. In the 27 weekends of extended hours since late night service began on March 28, more than one-half million trips have taken between the hours of 12:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. on weekends.

“Extended weekend hours on the T allowed film fans to catch a midnight movie last weekend along with the thousands of other riders using the extended hours for jobs or other needs, and we hope riders also take the bus or subway to enjoy the food and fashion this weekend,” said MassDOT Secretary & CEO Richard A. Davey.

“The T makes customer service priority number one, and what better way to serve our hungry customers than with a late bus or train to visit great food options on the Greenway,” said MBTA General Manager Dr. Beverly Scott.
