Buses will replace subway service on the Blue Line between Wonderland Station and Airport Station on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7, while crews perform work on a project at Orient Heights Station, according to the MBTA.

Shuttles, which are accessible to people with disabilities, will stop at Wonderland and Airport stations as well as at the five stops between them, the T’s website said.

T officials have estimated that shuttles will replace trains between Airport and Wonderland stations on 13 weekends between this spring and next fall as work is done on a project to overhaul Orient Heights Station. Dates for those weekend diversions are expected to be announced incrementally, as they are finalized.

Orient Heights Station closed for renovations on March 23. It will remain closed through mid-October. Trains can bypass, but not stop at, the station during the shutdown.

For more information, contact the MBTA Customer Communications Department at 617-222-3200, TTY: 617-222-5146.
