    BOSTON, MA - FEBRUARY 10: An MBTA bus makes its way down East 4th St. on February 10, 2015 in Boston, Massachusetts.

    The MBTA has announced shuttle bus service will be available for the annual South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday.

    Shuttle bus service will operate to and from South Station, and along Summer St. and East 1st St. from the hours of 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Parade-goers can also take the Red Line to South Station, Andrew Station, and Broadway Station, but the MBTA says trains will frequently bypass Broadway due to heavy crowds and safety concerns.

    You can watch the parade live on necn and necn.com. We'll kick off the celebration with our "Live on the Green Carpet" pre-show at 9 a.m., followed at 10 by the Breakfast with host State Senator Linda Dorcena Forry. The parade kicks off at 12:30 p.m.
