Subway Service Changes Take Effect Monday, June 20

For Immediate Release:
June 17, 2022




Subway Service Changes
Take Effect Monday, June 20

 BOSTON – The MBTA today announced weekday subway service changes to take effect on the Red, Orange, and Blue Lines on Monday, June 20, and continuing through the summer. These changes are the result of staffing challenges among the ranks of subway dispatchers in the MBTA’s Operations Control Center. With a limited number of dispatchers, these new timetables allow the MBTA to schedule dispatchers in compliance with Federal Transit Administration directives, and continue delivering service in a safe and reliable manner. 

These changes, which mirror typical Saturday schedules for the subway, affect weekday service only. There will be no changes to Red, Orange, or Blue Line weekend service, and no changes to any Green Line service. 

As of last week, ridership on the Red and Orange Lines remained approximately 50% below pre-pandemic levels while Blue Line volume was about 44% below pre-Covid ridership.  

The MBTA is exploring multiple options to add capacity at the Control Center, including an aggressive recruitment campaign, offering bonuses, and potentially hiring back former dispatchers.  

If dispatch capacity permits, there may be days when the MBTA can increase the number of trains in service. And as soon as sufficient dispatch capacity exists, the MBTA will revert to its previous level of service.  

There is one exception to the revised summer schedule. In the afternoon and evening of Monday, July 4, the MBTA will provide regular weekday service in order to accommodate people attending Independence Day festivities.   

Red Line:

Effective June 20, Red Line weekday trains will operate every 14 to 15 minutes on both the Ashmont and Braintree branches and seven to eight minutes between trains on the “trunk” of the Red Line between Alewife and JFK/UMass stations.

Red Line weekday summer service is typically nine to 10 minutes between trains during morning and evening peak periods, 10 to 12 minutes between trains during off-peak hours, and every five to six minutes between trains on the “trunk” of the Red Line between Alewife and JFK/UMass stations.


Orange Line:

Effective June 20, Orange Line weekday trains will operate every 10 minutes in the mornings, 11 minutes between trains in the evenings, and eight to nine minutes between trains during mid-day periods.

Orange Line weekday summer service is typically six to seven minutes between trains during morning and evening peak periods, and every seven to eight minutes between trains during off-peak periods.

Blue Line:

Effective June 20, Blue Line weekday trains will operate every seven minutes until 9 AM, and every eight to nine minutes for the rest of the day.

Blue Line weekday summer service is typically five minutes between trains during morning and evening peak periods, every nine to 10 minutes between trains in the mid-day mornings, and every five to six minutes between trains in the mid-day afternoons.

FPAC Presents MBTA Integrated Art & Objects Screening


MBTA Green Line Extension Integrated Public Art / Seven GLX Stations
Opening ReceptionThursday, June 9th  |  5:00pm –7:30pm
Location: FPAC Gallery, 300 Summer Street
Curator: Christine Vaillancourt
R.S.V.P.

FPAC invites you to the opening reception for the MBTA Green Line
Extension Public Artists Exhibition at the FPAC Gallery!  The event 
will start at 5pm and end at 7:30pm. Refreshments will also be served
and alcohol for those who are of age. Though this is a free event,
registration is encouraged.

 
In 2014, the MBTA began selection of artists to create public art for
seven new stations for the Green Line Extension (GLX) through Cambridge,
Somerville, and Medford. The selection committee was comprised of the
Arts Councils of Cambridge, Somerville, Medford, and MBTA and GLX architects.

The MBTA’s GLX Integral Art Program incorporated art into the design rather
than add-ons or afterthoughts. The intent was to humanize the environment
and uniqueness of each station experienced by the ridership and the various
communities. Various concepts and final works are presented with some
of the artists juxtaposing work not related to the stations. 




OBJECTS Private Screening & Discussion

Film Screening: Thursday, June 9th  |  7:00pm – 9:00pm

Location: Assemblage, 70 Sleeper Street

Director: Vincent Liota

R.S.V.P.


"An Object's Promise" and FPAC invite you to a private screening of
"OBJECTS," an endearing, entertaining, and existential film about the
secret lives of the special objects that preserve memories, conjure
experiences, and create meaning in our lives. Followed by a discussion
with director, Vincent Liota.

The screening is part of the exhibition "An Object’s Promise", a
playful and poignant maximalist intervention that raises
consciousness about our possessions and intentions.

MAYOR WU ANNOUNCES CURBSIDE FOOD WASTE COLLECTION PROGRAM

Building on her commitment to make Boston a Green New Deal City, Mayor Michelle Wu and the Public Works Department announced that a curbside food waste collection program with rolling online enrollment is now available. Food waste collection will align with residents’ scheduled trash and recycling collection days. This program will reduce the City’s reliance on landfills and incinerators, and make it more convenient for Boston residents to dispose of their household food waste. The food waste, which will be collected through a partnership between Garbage to Garden and Save That Stuff, will be sent to Save that Stuff's composting site in West Bridgewater to be turned into compost that will be made available to Boston parks, gardens, and schools, and sent to Waste Management's CORe Facility in Charlestown where it will be made into clean energy. Learn more here.



City Announcements

MAYOR WU ANNOUNCES CITY INITIATIVES FOR A SAFE, HEALTHY SUMMER

Mayor Michelle Wu announced the City of Boston’s comprehensive plan for a safe and healthy summer for all Boston residents, communities, and neighborhoods. Mayor Wu announced several violence prevention and intervention initiatives, including the Community Ambassadors Program, “Adopt a Block” initiative, Operation Homefront, and new employment and job training opportunities. These programs fill critical gaps in service delivery, build new possibilities for Boston, and ensure the City fully supports our communities most directly impacted by violence with the safety, trust, and accessibility that residents deserve.

This new, intensive approach addresses public safety through a lens of public health, equity, economic opportunity, and community trust. The initiatives announced today will also organize the wide variety of preexisting programs from the Mayor’s Office, Boston Public Schools (BPS), the Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC), the Human Services Cabinet, and the Boston Police Department (BPD) into a coordinated network of services to support Boston residents this summer.

Fort Point Channel Watersheet Activation Community Listening Sessions

updated 5/26/22: with videos, presentation and survey link.

The Fort Point Channel Working Group held two Virtual Listening Sessions and hopes you will share your thoughts on ways to activate the watersheet and make the 244–284 A Street project and Fort Point Channel’s Seawall Basin an inclusive, equitable, active and inviting destination for all the residents of our city.
Share your ideas, by taking the Fort Point Channel Working Group Survey by June 1st or email FPNA.


This meeting hosted by Save the Harbor / Save the Bay and the Fort Point Channel Working Group is in response to the BPDA's October 20, 2021 Request for Supplement Information, where the proponent of the 244–284 A Street Development was asked:
How does the proposed project embrace and respond to the 2002 Fort Point Channel Watersheet Activation Plan? The Plan calls for significant in-water infrastructure to support small boat programs and art installations including a new pier and boat house. This type of facility would be appropriate for a project of this scale along the Channel.
The Proponent should develop a series of meetings and workshops to advance watersheet activation uses and programs with organizations familiar with the Channel and opportunities for year round use and enjoyment of the Channel and also abilities to attract and welcome Boston’s diverse populations. Organizations including Save the Harbor / Save the Bay, Friends of the Fort Point Channel, the Boston Children's Museum, Fort Point Arts Community and the numerous nonprofit organizations funded through the Fort Point Channel Operations Board.

The  Fort Point Channel Working Group is currently comprised of Boston Harbor Now, The American Cities Coalition, Boston Children's Museum, Fort Point Arts Community (FPAC), Fort Point Neighborhood Association (FPNA), Friends of the Fort Point Channel, Save The Harbor, Save The Bay, Wharf District Council, Related Beal, BPDA and MassDEP.
