Quincy Adams and Braintree Station Closures
Red Line service to the Quincy Adams and Braintree stations will be shutdown starting June 18th and continuing through July 1st.

Train service will be replaced by shuttle buses between Quincy Center and Braintree, with stops at Quincy Adams.

The shutdown will allow for accelerated work on Red Line Maintenance and  South Shore Garages  projects.

As part of this work, crews will:

  • Replace 3,500 railroad ties between Quincy Center and Braintree
  • Replace track to improve safety and lift a long-standing speed restriction

On weekdays during this work, riders can travel between Braintree and South Station on the Commuter Rail for just $2.40, the same price as a Zone 1A or subway fare. Simply show your CharlieCard or CharlieTicket to the conductor. Commuter Rail schedules for Braintree can be found here .
