Plan your trip home accordingly
If you braved the elements and took the T to work this morning, pack up your stuff now: The MBTA will shut down service at 2 p.m. due to severe weather caused by Hurricane Sandy. According to the T website, the service suspension includes subway, bus and commuter rail service. Ferry service had already been suspended earlier in the day. The Ride remains open but users are "strongly encouraged" to call the contractor for their area to see if service is available.

Going south on the Orange line won't be easy this weekend.
Plan for major delays taking the Orange Line into the city this weekend. The T will be working on the tracks between Forest Hills and Ruggles on Saturday, June 2 and Sunday, June 3, running buses as a replacement for regular service. Normal service will resume Monday, according to an advisory on the MBTA web site. Buses will stop at every station between Forest Hills and Ruggles, the T advisory states. You might be better off just taking the 39 Bus, depending on where you're headed downtown.
