Service Status for Wednesday, Feb. 10

This will be the last update specific to Wednesday's service levels. Tonight, we will post a list of anticipated bus and T service levels for Thursday.

About 90 percent of Port Authority's bus and T routes are in service Wednesday night, although multiple bus routes continue to be detoured and experience delays.

Riders should anticipate delays through the remainder of this evening and again during the Thursday morning rush hour.
A list of bus and T routes that remain out of service, or on a detour, is posted below.

The T system has experienced very few difficulties today and is serving Downtown stations (except Gateway, which is under construction). The Hampshire stop was not being served this evening as snow has accumulated from plowing and created an unsafe condition for customers.

Port Authority employees have worked nonstop, since the first storm forced the complete shut down of service, to restore bus and T routes. As you might imagine, the demand for route information since Friday night has been very high.

We have tried our best to provide you with accurate, up-to-date information about routes through our Customer Service department, our Web site and via Twitter. We realize travel has been difficult since Friday and we very much appreciate your patience.

An overview of Port Authority's current service levels:

  • Bus service: less than 20 routes remain out of service.
  • The T: operating on a regular schedule and providing normal service to Downtown stations (except Gateway, which is closed during construction). Hampshire stop is not being served. The 52 Allentown light rail route is not operating.
  • Mon Incline: in service.
  • Wabash HOV: closed.

  1. Any idea when the 51B will run on Willett again? I'm trying to figure out when I can get back to work. I really appreciate all the updates!

  2. It's hard to predict when that might happen - depends on the progress of road clearing and could change as the weather changes. I'd recommend checking back on our web site, - that usually gets updated before the blog does. And we are also putting the updates on our Twitter feed, As soon as a routing change is announced we'll post it in those places first, followed by the blog.

  3. Re: 77f + 94b routing - Jancey and Chislett streets were finally being treated tonight for several hours so is there any chance of restoring regular routes?!?

  4. ditto on the 77F and 94B, my blind uncle hasn't been to work (or anywhere for that matter) since Friday.

    Oh, and you might want to mention that the 53F isn't running, kinda sucked waiting for over an hour in a 9 degree wind chill.

  5. 77F and 94B are both back on regular routing. That has been updated on the web site and we'll update the blog to reflect this shortly.

    Regarding the 53F, we had no indication it wasn't running. I apologize. Please let me know if you're interested in talking with Customer Service about it or filing a complaint.
