Keolis Commuter Services Releases New Spring Train Schedules
NEC member Keolis Commuter Services, which operates the MBTA’s Commuter Rail service, recently announced a new Spring 2021 Schedule and improved services in efforts to better meet passenger needs. Some of the plan’s priorities include enhancing train frequency and interval predictability, allowing for greater consistency in train arrivals and departures, and providing extended service hours. In addition, the new changes seek to improve accessibility for essential and transit-critical workers, as well as less frequent riders.
A collaborative effort between the MBTA and Keolis Commuter Services, the schedule took effect on Monday, April 5, 2021 . It is expected to increase service significantly compared to the Winter Schedule which had been in place since December 2020. Sanitation and social distancing will continue to be implemented in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines.
“The new Spring 2021 schedule provides options that our passengers have requested and can assist in a strong and equitable economic recovery with regular service across all lines and more consistent service to many gateway cities,” said Keolis Commuter Services CEO and General Manager David Scorey..
