Monday the transit authority announced that it is considering significant reductions in bus, subway, and rail service beginning next year in response to low ridership and revenue, resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Among the many possibilities announced was the “consolidation” of bus route 62, between the VA Hospital on Springs Road and Alewife Station, and the elimination of Route 351, which connects businesses in the Middlesex Turnpike corridor with Alewife Station.
