Marathon Monday MBTA changes

Copley Station will be closed all day on Marathon Monday. In addition, South Street, Kent Street and Saint Mary’s Street stations will be closed from 10am to 6pm. The MBTA said it could make additional adjustments or temporary closures at additional stations near the finish line.

The trains on the green, red, orange, blue and silver lines run on weekdays. Additional service is offered before and after the race.

Commuter Rail trains on the Worcester Line operate a special Marathon Monday schedule. As a result, additional incoming and outgoing trains will run. Other Commuter Rail lines will operate on normal weekday schedules.

The Copley Square bus stop on St. James Ave. will be out of service until Tuesday, April 16. Passengers will be directed to the bus stop on St. James Ave. on Clarendon Street, the MBTA said.

On Marathon Monday, routes 55 and 65 will be suspended all day. Route 1 will operate on an increased Saturday schedule from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Routes 9, 10, 39, 43, 51, 57, 62 and 76 may be shortened or diverted. Routes 354 and 501 operate on a weekly schedule.

The RIDE and all ferries operate on regular weekdays. The only impact could be possible detours for The RIDE to accommodate potential marathon-related events.

Bicycles will not be allowed on the MBTA all day Monday.

Passengers are encouraged to load sufficient funds onto their CharlieCard or CharlieTIcket early in the day. The MBTA is asking people to pay with a credit or debit card to reduce lines at stations.

The MBTA said it does not recommend driving to the finish line or other viewing areas because of the long list of parking restrictions. Instead, passengers are asked to park at an MBTA station and take the T or Commuter Rail.

Parking rates range from $2 to $15.
