Some food truck hours extended in Boston

There’s good news today for pubgoers, insomniacs, and anyone else craving a hoagie, a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, or a cookie from a food truck late at night in Boston.

The mayor’s office says that it will extend the hours of food trucks in three areas – Copley Square, Boston University, and Northeastern University.

The trucks in those areas can keep their doors —or windows — open for an extra hour, until midnight, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, the mayor’s office said this morning in a statement.

“Food truck owners and customers have been asking for later hours for food trucks, and we’ve been listening,” Walsh said. “We’ll be looking at this pilot to see if it’s something we can expand to more sites.”

The sites were selected by the mayor’s Mobile Food Truck Committee, which received input from the Boston Police Department

If the program is successful, the committee will consider expanding the pilot to other “appropriate sites,” the mayor’s office said.

The later hours will begin on April 1.

The extension of the food truck hours comes as the MBTA launches a pilot of late-night weekend service, in an effort by city and T officials to make the city more appealing to younger residents, innovation workers, and other people who stay out long past midnight.

The program will provide weekend service until 3 a.m. on the subway system and the 15 most popular bus routes, T officials told the Globe Wednesday.

The food trucks participating in the extended-hour program will be:

BBQ Lamb Brothers

Bon Me

Chicken and Rice Guys

Cookie Monstah

Frozen Hoagies

Meng’s Kitchen

And newcomers:

Mediterranean Home Cooking

Stoked Pizza

Tea Station

The Bacon Truck
