Green Line D Branch Track & Signal Replacement Project

Posted on September 6, 2019 at 2:39 PM by Melissa Goff

Bus Shuttles Replace Green Line D Service in September and October
Due to major infrastructure projects on the D Branch, bus shuttles will replace train service on some weekends in September and all weekends in October 2019.

Shuttles will replace service the following weekends between Newton Highlands and Kenmore:

September 14 – 15 for track work at Brookline Hills related to the Brookline High School Expansion Project; and signal and electrical work between Newton Highlands and Reservoir
September 21 – 22 for track, signal and electrical work between Reservoir and Beaconsfield; and signal work between Newton Highlands and Chestnut Hill
All October weekends for flood control work at Fenway Portal; and signal and electrical work from Newton Highlands to east of Beaconsfield

Additional weekend bus shuttles in 2019 and 2020 will be announced. Weeknight shuttles between Newton Highlands and Kenmore will also continue through December 2019. Please visit the Green Line D Shuttles page for details.

Customers should anticipate adding 15 minutes to their normal trip during this time. Please note that there will be no shuttle bus service to or from Beaconsfield Station. Customers should instead use Dean Road on the Green Line C branch.
