Starting next month, subway service between the Orange Line’s four most northern stations will be replaced by buses after 9 p.m. on five days each week for nearly six months, according to the MBTA.

Shuttles will run between Oak Grove Station and Sullivan Square Station from 9 p.m. until the end of service on every Sunday through Thursday from July 8 to Dec. 28, officials said.

The buses, which are accessible for people with disabilities, will stop at those two stations as well as at the two stations in between: Malden Center Station and Wellington Station, according to the T’s website.

During the times the four subway stations and their connecting tunnels are shut down, MBTA crews plan to perform track, power, and signal work between Wellington and Sullivan Square Stations as part of the Assembly Square Station Project, officials said.

On at least two recent weekends, the T has replaced subway service with shuttles at those same four stations to do similar work.
