That time they announced the T would stay open later
Students, techies, and late night revelers rejoiced when the MBTA announced it was reinstating its late night service.
The one-year pilot program will keep subway trains and 15 popular buses (the 1, 15, 22, 23, 28, 32, 39, 57, 66, 71, 73, 77, 111, 116, and 117) running until 3 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The program is slated to begin in March or April.
Gov. Deval Patrick told the Globe the late night service will be funded by $20 million in state money and corporate sponsorships.
