How Was Your MBTA Commute from Newton Wednesday Morning?
A pair of problems on the MBTA snarled the commute for many, leaving some out in the freezing temperatures waiting for trains and shuttle buses.
On the coldest morning of the season so far, hundreds of local commuters were forced to wait outside for bus shuttles after the T shut down Green Line service to Downtown Boston due to smoldering cable wires.
Service had resumed by 11 a.m. on Wednesday, soon enough for the afternoon commuters, but not soon enough for those traveling in the morning.
On top of the Green Line trouble, commuter rail passengers had to wait in single-digit temperatures Wednesday morning as many Framingham/Worcester commuter rail trains faced delays between 20-45 minutes.
As of 11:30 a.m., the P518 (10:50 a.m.) inbound train was still facing 10- to 15-minute delays.
