MBTA restores service to Red Line, B branch on Green Line

Service has resumed on portions of the Red Line and all branches of the Green Line, a day earlier than anticipated, transit officials said Sunday.

The train between North Quincy and Braintree on the Red Line is fully restored, as is service on the B branch of the Green Line between Kenmore Square and Boston College.

The commuter rail will remain on its recovery schedule for Monday’s commute, officials said Sunday evening. The schedule can be found on the MBTA’s website. Keolis, the company that operates the commuter rail, will have 46 trains in service Monday compared to the weekday normal of 65, according to a statement from the state’s transportation department.


“Keolis would like to thank passengers for their patience and to remind them that things will not immediately change overnight,” officials said in the statement. “Getting the system back up and running is Keolis’ highest priority but will not happen quickly.”

With Greater Boston pummeled by snow over the past weeks, the T has seen a number of cancellations and delays.

Earlier this week, MBTA officials said it could take another 30 days to restore all service.

“Today marks a major step to getting the transit service our customers and expect and deserve back up and running,” said MBTA General Manager, Beverly Scott, in a statement Sunday. “Despite the major setbacks the weather has dealt us, I want to thank Governor Baker for playing a vital role in the coordination of resources and assistance we had to help expedite the restoration of service. I also want to express our appreciation for our customers and say thank you for your loyalty.”
