Rail service on stretches of the MBTA’s Green Line came to a stop Tuesday morning as crews responded to an apparent power issue, officials said.
The MBTA said shuttle buses would replace service in several areas, including between Kenmore and Park Street stations after a power problem led to trains halting in the area of Copley station.
“We are working to restore service as quickly and safely as possible,” the transportation authority said on social media around 11:15 a.m.. “Riders downtown are encouraged to use Orange Line for service between Back Bay & North Station.”
Meanwhile, service between Packard’s Corner and Government Center for the line’s B Branch was suspended, in addition to service on the E Branch between Prudential and Park Street.
In an update at noon, MBTA officials said train service had resumed between Kenmore and Park Street, with a note that riders may encounter delays later in the day due to “a maintenance train [inspecting] the overhead wires on the line.”
Tuesday’s issues appeared days after “an overhead wire problem” near Copley station caused a similar stoppage on Saturday.
