In an effort to increase ridership, the MBTA will be offering free rides between Wickford Junction and Providence (TF Green in-between) starting July 3, 2017 through the end of 2017.  Monthly Zone 9 & 10 Commuter Rail, 10-Ride Half Fare and Interzone Passes will still be available for purchase through the Pass Program but will be offered at the Zone 8 price.

***ATTENTION***

MBTA riders from the Newburyport/Rockport line beyond Salem

Beverly Drawbridge will be closed from July 17-August 13

 

Message from the MBTA:

“To provide more reliable service on the Newburyport/Rockport Line, the MBTA is replacing the Beverly Drawbridge this summer. Construction is scheduled from July 17 to August 13.  During this time, there will be no train service north of Salem Station. We understand customers will need to choose other ways to commute to and from work during these four weeks and we apologize for the inconvenience this disruption will cause. To help minimize disruption, the MBTA will provide a bus service diversion plan to Salem Station. Shuttle service to Salem Station is free of charge.  This information will be available on mbta.com on Monday, June 5 and shared at public meetings in Gloucester, Beverly and Newburyport.

 

Although this project does not start until July 17, the MBTA will be honoring Zone 3 passes at all Newburyport/Rockport line stations for the months of July and August to thank our loyal monthly pass customers for their patience during this time.  Customers riding the Newburyport/Rockport line are encouraged to purchase a Zone 3 Commuter Rail Pass for July and August.”

 

Affected employees who wish to change their pass election from a Zone 4-8 pass to a Zone 3 pass for July and August,  Please contact the TranSComm office ASAP or do so by the 10th of the prior month.
