BOSTON (WHDH) - Service resumed Monday afternoon after shuttle buses temporarily replaced trains between some MBTA Red Line stops due to fire department and power department activity on tracks.

The MBTA announced disruptions in a series of posts on X, first reporting delays of approximately 15 minutes “due to reports of smoke” near Shawmut station around 11:45 a.m.

The T in an update said shuttle buses were continuing to replace trains between Ashmont and JFK/UMass stations as of around 2:30 p.m. while power department crews inspected affected areas. 

The T in a separate post reported disruptions on the Mattapan Trolley beginning around 1:45 p.m. due to power department activity on tracks. 

Normal service later resumed throughout the Red Line, with shuttle buses phased out of use.

While the T did not share further information on either of the disruptions impacting Red Line service Monday, fire crews were spotted at work, at one point, around Shawmut station.
