Boston: MBTA Loses Power, Causing Delays for Green Line Service

Commuters who take the MBTA’s Green Line trolleys are facing major delays because of a wire problem.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said this morning (Tuesday) that Green Line service is suspended between Kenmore Square and Government Center due to problems with the electrified wiring.

The T is warning commuters to expect delays.

The T is using shuttle buses along the affected Green Line routes, and broadcasters showed large crowds waiting for buses. The T is also suggesting commuters switch to the Orange Line.

One man tweeted video of commuters getting off a trolley that lost power in a tunnel and commuters walking along the tunnel.

The T did not say when service would return to normal.
