MBTA Adds Crew Members, Resources Ahead of Winter Storm
Tuesday, February 12, 2019
According to the National Weather Service, the storm is expected to begin around noontime on Tuesday and drop as much as six inches of snow on the area.
The MBTA will deploy more than 350 personnel across the commuter rail to shovel, sand and salt passenger areas, as well as to respond to incidents that take place during the storm, such as downed trees.
Crews will be pre-positioned at key facilities and infrastructures to help ensure normal operations.
Switch heaters will be activated to ensure a normal flow of train traffic and mechanical teams will apply deicer to coach doors to help keep trains operating on time.
Passengers who have to travel this afternoon should leave extra time to get to stations, use caution on platforms and when boarding trains, and stay connected for service updates here.
