Late-night shift on MBTA goes smoothly

No arrests, lots of riders as test of service begins

The T's trains, most popular buses, and The Ride service for people with disabilities will operate until 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights -- two hours later than usual -- but last runs will begin around 2 a.m., with trains meeting in the heart of the city a half-hour before closing to allow passengers time to make transfers.
