MBTA, Cities & Towns, and Additional Links
MASSACHUSETTS BAY TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY (MBTA)
The MBTA will accommodate thousands of extra riders as they travel throughout Greater Boston for the 2014 Boston Marathon. The annual event is scheduled to take place on Patriots' Day, Monday, April 21, 2014. Customers are urged to take public transportation to and from the Marathon and advised to check T-Alerts for the most up-to-date service information on the day of the race.
In preparation for Marathon Monday, the MBTA will enhance service to rush-hour levels before and after the race on April 21, 2014. Pre-marathon events are also scheduled during the week before the race, which will result in adjustments to various bus routes in and around Copley Square. On Marathon Monday, various bus routes on both the North and South sides will be diverted.
Customers should also note that all MBTA parking garages will be pay-on-entry and cash-only on Patriots' Day, April 21, 2014, in order to ensure all customers exit in a timely manner. Due to heavy parking demand, some MBTA parking garages and lots may fill more quickly than normal. Customers planning to park in an MBTA garage or lot should plan accordingly.
Due to congestion, bikes are not allowed on any MBTA vehicles on Patriots' Day.
