    Coronavirus Updates for July 20 – 26, 2020

    The following changes to service and operations have been made to protect the health and safety of essential workers who rely on public transit, as well as our frontline staff.

    • All riders and employees are required to wear face coverings while riding the T.
    • Shared trips on The RIDE have been eliminated. RIDE customers can still bring a personal care attendant or guest on their trip.
    • The CharlieCard Store is closed until further notice.
    • MBTA has installed new protective barriers and decals at the front of vehicles to help maintain distance between riders and operators, allowing themto resume front-door boarding on buses and at street-level trolley stops. Riders who are able should board at the front door and exit at the rear door. (Note: Shuttles between North Station and Lechmere will continue to board at the rear door until further notice.)
    • Standard fare collection processes will resume at the front doors of buses and trolleys.
    • Bus operators have the option—with approval from the Control Center—to bypass a stop if they feel the bus is becoming too crowded to safely accommodate any more riders.
    • Stations and vehicles are being cleaned and sanitized with increased frequency.
