The MBTA is joining New York's Metropolitan Transit Authority in banning hover boards in their buses, trains and stations.
Officials confirmed that the ban will happen soon, but they haven't set a date yet.
The policy change comes just days after firefighters responded to a hoverboard fire in Chelmsford, Massachusetts.
A spokesman says the agency has obvious safety concerns. They're not alone, other major transit systems across the country have banned hover boards, as well as a number of universities, including some in Boston.
Hoverboards were a very popular holiday gift and in the past few months have sparked concern because of injury and fire.
Right now, the consumer product safety commission is investigating the toys.

Hassan Masood of Norfolk said, ""If there's a safety concern then definitely it's worth investigating and putting it on hold and stopping it from going on the transit system. Obviously we don't want any accidents."
