MBTA Route 39 Moves Permanently to Upper Busway on Saturday

The MBTA Route 39 bus is moving to its permanent location this Saturday, October 14th.

A map of where the MBTA 39 bus will begin at upper busway at the Forest Hills MBTA station starting Oct. 14, 2017.

The move will occur following the end of bus operations on Friday, October 13, as the 39 will cease operating from the Route 39 loop at the northern end (towards Doyle’s Café and the Monument) of the Forest Hills Station block.

Beginning with the start of bus operations on Saturday, October 14, the Route 39 bus will operate from the upper busway at the MBTA Forest Hills Station, according to a press release from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT). Passengers looking to access the 39 should exit to the upper busway as normal and turn to their right as they exit the station.

The area that was occupied by the Route 39 loop will immediately become part of the Casey Arborway work zone. There will be a pedestrian route from Forest Hills Station’s northern exit to Hyde Park Avenue and South Street.

Also, a new traffic signal will be activated on Washington Street to allow buses to exit onto Washington Street. The signal at South Street adjacent to the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post will remain active.
