[ARCHIVED] New, Improved MBTA Schedules Begin on April 5

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) is taking steps to restore service cuts that resulted from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

MBTA officials announced this decision after receiving more than $845 million from the COVID-19 Relief Fund package recently passed by the Federal government. 

These service changes will go into effect on Monday, April 5 and improve subway, bus, and ferry service as well as commuter rail service on all lines including the Framingham/Worcester line. 

The current, reduced MBTA schedule from this winter will end on Sunday, April 4. 

The new Spring MBTA schedule will start on April 5. For Wellesley residents, the new schedule offers hourly commuter rail service Monday through Friday in the 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. time period, and trains at regular 60-minute set cycles throughout the remainder of the weekdays.

Commuter rail service on weekends and holidays will return to trains every two hours. On Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays the last train leaving Boston for Wellesley and other MetroWest areas will depart at 9 p.m. 

The new schedules are intended to address changes to travel patterns that the MBTA expects to see once the pandemic is over. 

This more consistent, all-day service aligns with the MBTA's Rail Vision plan that aims to build better transportation services that support intra zone travel, off-peak travel, and improved reverse commuter travel.
