Kendall Square Detour 2-6-2017

Streets in Kendall Square will be closed for the construction of MIT's SOMA project. 

EZR will use Ames St., instead of going all the way around the Kendall Sq. bus loop, Broadway to Main St., to run faster through the area.  Preliminary detour routes maps.

The relocation of stops to Ames St. will require some passengers to walk further to access the service.  We apologize for the inconvenience, and request you balance that against the reduced running time to your destination.

Kendall Sq AM/PM Outbound:  Exit and Board on Ames St. at Main St.

Kendall Sq AM/PM Inbound Midday:  Exit and Board at 500 Main St.

Sloan/Amherst AM Inbound:  Exit and Board at 500 Main St.
