EZRide Shuttle - "Reduced Holiday" and "Early Release" Schedules

Reduced Holiday: On days with low ridership, EZRide runs a "Reduced Holiday" schedule. The span of service is unchanged, but the headways (the time between buses) is increased. We have analyzed ridership data and run this schedule when there is less than 50% of normal ridership. See the Reduced Holiday schedule here.

The Reduced Holiday schedule runs on the following days in 2015:

1/19, 4/20, 10/12, 12/24*, 12/28, 12/29, 12/30, 12/31*

* On December 24 and 31, evening departures will run one hour early. See the Reduced Holiday Early Release schedule.

Early Release: On "getaway days" before major holidays, EZRide runs an "Early Release" schedule, with all evening departures beginning and ending one hour early, with service running from approximately 2:00 to 6:30. Morning and Midday service is unchanged, except that Midday service ends at 2:00 (as noted on the Midday Schedule). See the Early Release schedule here.

The Early Release schedule runs on the following days:

5/22, 7/2, 9/4, 11/25, 12/24*, 12/31*

* On December 24 and 31, a Reduced Holiday schedule will run. See the Reduced Holiday Early Release schedule.

No Service: On major holidays (and any day that does not have weekday MBTA Commuter Rail service), EZRide service does not run. In 2015, there will be no service on 1/1, 1/2, 2/16, 5/25, 7/3, 9/7, 11/26, 11/27, 12/25.
