MBTA Commuter Rail Changes Schedule For Medical Workers Fighting COVID-19

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Starting Wednesday morning, MBTA Commuter Rail trains will start coming into Boston earlier in the morning in order to ferry in healthcare workers battling COVID-19.

There has been a dramatic demand for travel by medical professionals, so the T shifted their train schedules to help these workers travel with enough time to meet shift changes at hospitals and other medical facilities.

The Haverhill, Lowell, Fitchburg, Newburyport, and Needham lines will be rescheduled so trains arrive between 6:20-6:40 a.m.

Meanwhile, though the MBTA is disinfecting its buses, trolleys, and subway cars, it's encouraging people to avoid any unnecessary travel.
