FRAMINGHAM – Framingham/Worcester commuter rail passengers will need to take shuttle buses on Friday, July 3.
Buses will replace all train service between Framingham & South Station due to Positive Train Control (PTC) implementation work.
Positive Train Control (PTC) is a federally mandated system to monitor and control train movements that will help prevent train-to-train collisions, speed-related derailments and incursions into zones where work may be taking place. Installation work will be performed on every Commuter Rail line, dispatch center, locomotive, and control car, impacting operations system-wide.
The MBTA said normal weekday train service resumes August 3
