On Wednesday afternoon, the MassDOT board approved the continuation of Late-Night T Service, but will operate on a reduced schedule due to budgetary constraints. This means, according to the Boston Globe, that passengers will have to wait for a longer duration of time between rides.
The initial trial period for the service allowed for the subway and certain bus lines to operate as late as 2:30 a.m. but the latest approval, for which $10 million is dedicated, curtails that time to just 2 a.m. It's part of "a $2.02 billion budget for the T’s 2016 fiscal year," reports the Globe.
Further, starting June 27, the 15, 22, 71, 73, and 77 bus routes will not operate past 12:30 a.m. Ten other bus lines will remain.
