EZRide Holiday Service operates on days when ridership patterns and connecting services are different from normal. EZRide runs three holiday service patterns, the "Reduced Holiday" schedule, the evening "Early Release" schedule, and No Service as detailed below:

Reduced HolidayOn 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 2017:


Early ReleaseOn "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:

5/26, 7/3, 9/1, 11/22, 12/22

No ServiceOn major holidays (and any day that does not have weekday MBTA Commuter Rail service), EZRide service does not operate. In 2017, there will be no service on 1/2, 2/20, 5/29, 7/4, 9/4, 11/23, 11/24, 12/25. See more information here
