The MBTA is extending weekend service on all subways and the 15 most popular bus routes until 3 a.m. starting this spring as part of a one-year pilot program.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced the program Tuesday, according to the Boston Globe. It will be funded by $20 million in state funds, as well as corporate sponsors.
If popular, the program could become permanent, the Globe reports.
The T currently shuts down at about 1 a.m. The new program will start in March or April.
Wellington Station, via the Orange Line, is included in the program. However, none of the 15 most popular bus routes run through Medford.
Late-night fares will be the same as regular fares.
