Hundreds of North Station commuters and Red Sox revelers faced long lines stretching down Causeway Street during Wednesday’s rush hour, as officials predicted record ridership on the commuter rail.

With the Sox championship parade wrapping up this afternoon and workers leaving the office for the day, commuter rail riders were asked to queue on the street heading toward the North Station entrances. Keolis Commuter Services, the private company that operates the commuter rail for the T, said extra trains are ready to provide additional service through the afternoon. Yet on social media, riders claimed to have been in line for 45 minutes or longer, and some worried they would not arrive home in time to trick or treat with their children on Halloween night.
