Boston – Due to a major Amtrak communication signal system failure, many MBTA Commuter Rail trains are unable to access or depart South Station until further notice.

Passengers on the Stoughton and Providence lines will depart from South Station. Passengers on all other lines are advised NOT to come to South Station, but to utilize alternative departure points that have been established for each line as listed. Passengers can expect significant delays throughout the evening commute, with some regularly scheduled weekday trains cancelled. Commuter rail passengers may make free transfers to mass transit trains as they did earlier today.

Keolis and the MBTA will continue to provide updates on the Amtrak failure and the impact on service via T-Alerts, on Twitter @MBTA_CR and at 617-222-3200. Passengers are advised to consult MBTA.com for updates for additional information and before beginning the February 19 morning commute. The MBTA and Keolis have placed staff at several key T stations to help guide passengers and call-in help centers will also have additional staff to assist customers.

Amtrak officials advise passengers to look for updates concerning the commute tomorrow.

The MBTA appreciates the patience of passengers with this service disruption. Check mbta.com for a departure list.
