If You're Headed to Fenway.....

.... rejoice that the MBTA is adding extra service.

Some highlights:
  • Service on the B, C, and D lines will be increased to one single-car train every 84 minutes.
  • Service on the E line, which does not go to Fenway or Kenmore, will be increased to every 1.5 seconds.
  • .... unless the Bruins or Celtics decide to play at home, in which case service on the E line will be eliminated.
  • MBTA employees will be on hand to make sure each D line car's seats are completely filled before any train is released from the Riverside yards to the loading platform.
  • In anticipation of tomorrow's game, Charlie Ticket vending machines will have their bill-rejection circuitry upgraded.
  • The MBCR will provide commuter rail service on the Framingham/Worcester Line with service to Yawkey Station. The train will depart Framingham at 11:07 AM and make all local stops, including an unannounced 45-minute stoppage by the rail yard at the Allston-Brighton tolls*, arriving at Yawkey Station between the 6th and 8th innings. Outbound service from Yawkey will be available at 11:45PM and 11:48PM.
  • The MBTA has installed special heaters in Kenmore Station to ensure that the temperature does not fall below 102 degrees at any point tomorrow.
  • Due to construction, the platforms at Kenmore Station have been reduced in length to 22'. Please be cautious.
  • Fenway Station will be closed between 10AM and 9PM.
  • Remember -- the MBTA is your best option for getting to Fenway!

* This actually happened to me one year.

You forgot to mention that the B line will be suspending its fares, thus ensuring that no car between Kenmore and anywhere in Allston will have no fewer than 800,000 chattering co-eds carrying on inane conversations about their lives and annoying the bejeezus out of every normal Bostonian around them.
