One of the new Orange Line cars “had to be isolated” during the Wednesday morning commute due to a “door issue,” according to the MBTA.

“Yet another problem for a new Orange Line train. Told to get off at Wellington because doors wont close,” rider Chris Ferreira tweeted, accompanying a photo of the train car with its malfunctioning door.

Along with saying the car would be isolated, MBTA officials said in response that the train would continue operating through the morning commute, and the car would be examined afterward.

This isn’t the first time the new Orange Line trains have experienced issues. Both of the new, six-car trains were removed from service for seven weeks – spanning mid-November to early January – when engineers heard an “unusual noise” that had to do with a “wear pad” “wearing irregularly.”
