Bus Shuttles Replace Green Line D Service on Weekends and Weeknights through December

Regular train service will run November 27 – December 1

Due to several major infrastructure projects on the D Line, bus shuttles will replace train service on weeknights and weekends through December 2019. The shuttle schedule is listed below, and also on the Green Line D Service Changes page.

The shuttles are required for the Green Line D Track and Signal Replacement, Fenway Portal Project, and the Brookline High School Expansion Project. For more information about each project, see the Work Locations section on the Green Line D Track and Signal Replacement website.

Regular train service will run November 27-December 1 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Shuttles may add up to 15 minutes to your travel time. Please note: there will be no shuttle service at Beaconsfield. Customers should instead use Dean Road on the Green Line C branch or access the Green Line D shuttle from Reservoir.

Shuttles are accessible to people with disabilities. Some bus shuttles may be provided by third-party contractors and will look different than MBTA buses. Some may provide accessibility via a lift in the back rather than a ramp in front.
