Attention: Red line users (Braintree Line)

Starting on Monday, January 8, 2018, Wollaston station on the Red Line in Quincy will be closed for renovations that are planned to last 20 months. Given the disruption to an existing Red Line station, the MBTA will be setting Quincy Center to Zone 1A and accepting monthly CharlieCard LINK passes on Commuter Rail for trips between Quincy Center and JFK/UMASS and South Station to give riders additional transit options.
The only change is riders buying Zone 1 monthly passes to commute to/from South Station or JFK/UMASS to/from Quincy Center, as only a Zone 1A is needed during the disruption.

Boston to Lower Speed Limit to 25 MPH 


25mph  Starting January 9, 2017, Boston will officially enact a new city-wide speed limit – lowering the maximum speed from 30 to 25 MPH.

Starting January 9th, unless otherwise posted, the speed limit throughout the city will be 25 MPH. For more information, visit boston.gov/25mph
