Bus replacement for Aug. 20-21

Buses Take Place of Orange Line This Weekend

If you enjoyed last weekend's Orange Line hassle, you'll be happy to know this weekend a larger chunk of the line will be out of commission. On Saturday and Sunday, buses will replace trains between Forest Hills and Ruggles. It's bus service all day and night, both weekend days. Plan accordingly! Here's what the T says about the disruption:
Due to MBTA crews performing necessary track work, buses will replace Orange Line trains between Forest Hills and Ruggles Stations in both directions from start to end of service on Saturday, August 20, 2016, and Sunday, August 21, 2016.

It’s Shuttle Buses, Not Subway Service for Orange Line Next Two Weekends

Just in case subway riders haven't gotten a taste of Casey Arborway construction traffic, the T will be putting Orange Line passengers in shuttle buses this Saturday and Sunday, and again next weekend. The shuttle buses will be running so track and signal work can be done. The closures are in both directions from Ruggles to Forest Hills. Casey construction hours generally run through about 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays, though night work is slated to begin at 8 p.m. on Sunday, June 14, the last scheduled day of bus replacement service. For more on the subway closures, please visit the T's Website.
