Addition commuter rail trains – some of the them leaving as early as 6 a.m. – will take Red Sox fans into Boston on Saturday for the “rolling rally” to celebrate the team’s World Series win.
Changes are planned all across the MBTA system on Saturday to accommodate Sox fans, including additional subway and bus service.
“Please expect variations in scheduled times due to increased ridership and allow extra time for your trip,” the T said in announcing the special schedule. “The MBTA strongly urges parade-goers to take advantage of the earliest trains to avoid very heavy volume on subsequent trains.”
The rolling rally is planned to kickoff at 10 a.m. from Fenway Park.
The Red, Orange, Blue, and Green Lines will operate on an enhanced Saturday schedule with rush hour levels of service beginning at 7:00 a.m.
Customers are encouraged to buy their return fare on their inbound trip to avoid long lines and delays going home.
Red Line customers should also note that the previously scheduled diversion on November 2 and 3 between Kendall/MIT and Park Street Stations has been cancelled.
Commuter Rail service will not run on lines that do not normally run on Saturdays (Greenbush, Kingston, Needham, Fairmount, and Stoughton).
Making stops on each line, the South/West Side departure times will be:
- Trains departing Worcester at: 6:30 a.m., 7:30 a.m.
- Trains departing Franklin/Forge Park at: 6:35 a.m., 8:35 a.m.
- Trains departing Providence at: 6:35 a.m., 8:35 a.m.
- Trains departing Middleboro/Lakeville at: 6:50 a.m., 8:22 a.m.
All commuter rail lines will return to their regular Saturday schedule at about 4 p.m.
All trains will make all stops along the way on all of the trips, according to the T.
Commuter rail riders can buy a special $10 roundtrip fare electronically from the T’s mTicket app at www.mbta.com/mticket starting on Friday at 1 p.m.
Buses will run on a Saturday schedule with increased service on routes 39, 57, 111, 504 and 442. Express buses will run from Riverside to Kenmore Square starting at 7 a.m.
The rolling rally will cause routes 01, 08, SL5, 92, 93, 57 and 65 to be diverted.
Commuter boat customers can purchase $16 roundtrip fare on special event boats offered on Saturday. These boats will operate out of Hewitt's Cove, Hingham, to Long Wharf, Boston. Click here for the full schedule out of Hingham.
