(WBZ NewsRadio) Effective Tuesday, January 2, the MBTA will not be running ferry service between Hingham and Boston. This is the only ferry service that is being impacted at this time.
Extreme tides and ice buildup have caused damage to the existing dock structure at the Hingham Intermodal Facility. The MBTA became aware of this issue shortly after the low point of the tide cycle. The MBTA is assessing the extent of the damage; until that assessment and all attendant repairs are complete, ferry service will not be operating between Hingham and Boston until further notice.
Replacement bus service will be transporting ferry customers to the West Hingham Commuter Rail Station on the Greenbush Line. All customers with boat passes can board Greenbush trains at no extra cost.
The MBTA will provide an update on the condition of the docks and the status of service restoration by late afternoon on Tuesday, January 2, 2018. The MBTA understands this disruption is an inconvenience to its customers. However, the extent of the damage constitutes a safety hazard to ferry customers. The MBTA appreciates its customers’ patience as it works to expedite repairs and restore ferry service as soon as possible.
