Update 3/31/22: MBTA Orange Line Service Resumes, Bypassing Haymarket Station

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MBTA is making several service changes in response to a deadly accident at a parking garage.

Service for both the Green and Orange Line in the tunnels beneath the location of the partial collapse of the Government Center Parking Garage will be suspended until further notice. The MBTA will not resume service in the area until a team of structural engineers examines the area above and below the spot of the collapse to make sure the tunnels are safe for subway service.

Green Line is suspended from North Station to Government center and will be replaced with shuttle buses. The Orange Line, however, is completely suspended from North Station to Back Bay and will not have any shuttle buses running along those routes.

In place of Orange Line service, the MBTA recommends riders heading to Downtown Crossing or Back Bay use the Green Line stops at Park Street or Copley. Any passengers looking to get downtown from Forrest Hills are encouraged to take the commuter rail from Ruggles or Back Bay to South Station.

Bus Routes 92,93, and 111 that normally go to Haymarket will instead go to North Station.

The MBTA did not provide a timeline for when regular service will resume.
