All commuter rail service to Needham will be suspended from Thursday evening, November 10th after 8pm until Monday morning, November 14th.
What are my other options for getting from Boston towards Needham Thursday evening after 8 pm?
From South Station or Back Bay Station take the following lines:
Framingham / Worcester line to Wellesley Farms or Wellesley Hills
Providence / Stoughton Line to Route 128 station (no bus service to Needham) but plenty of parking.
Franklin Line to Dedham Corporate Center parking is available as well as connection to the # 52 bus to Spring Street/ Charles River Loop for pick up.
Fairmount Line also services Rte. 128 Station, but could transfer at Readville station to the Dedham Mall/Corporate Center, if more convenient for pick up.
Orange Line at Forest Hills: take the #35 bus , 34E bus to the Dedham Mall
#36 bus to Spring St. or Charles River loop Dedham for pick up
How do I get to Kenmore Station? Take the Green Line “B, C, D” Branch from Park St Sta. to Kenmore Station.
Green Line “B” Branch #57 bus from Kenmore Busway or Packard’s Corner to the Watertown Yard
Green Line “D” Branch
Newton Center; Newton Highlands; Eliot Station, Waban; Woodland, Riverside stations for pick up
Our office has contacted Keolis/MBTA to place additional #59 buses into service to coordinate with the #52/57 bus from the Kenmore Busway to the Watertown Yard and is awaiting a response. The #52 bus gives the most flexibility since it runs about every 10-12 minutes until the “T” shuts down in the evening.
#502 bus St James at Dartmouth St. (not far from Back Bay Station/Copley) to Newton Corner.
#501 and #503 bus Brighton Center to Copley Square
#504 bus from Watertown Yard to Newton Corner.
#558 bus from Surface Artery @ Kneeland St. (South Station Bus terminal) also picks up at Federal St and Franklin St, travels to Riverside (Green line)
