Snow Causes Commuter Delays Monday



    Whether by car or by train, expect a longer trip in to work (Published Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014)

    (NECN: Leslie Gaydos, Framingham, Mass.) - New England commuters should allow plenty of time to get to work Monday morning, as the heavy snow is causing some major delays.

    Whether traveling by car or by train, the ride in to work was expected to be a longer one, after the Halloween weekend snowfall caused several power outages and MBTA issues.

    The Mass. Bay Transportation Authority released a statement Monday morning, explaining that "Commuter rail customers who use the Worcester/Framingham, Fitchburg and Haverhill lines should expect delays throughout the day due to damage caused by the weekend storm. Delays will range anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes.

    Commuter rail customers on these and other lines are urged to check "T Alerts,", and Twitter feeds - @mbtaGM and @MBCR_info - in the morning to get the best available information regarding storm-related delays."
