As snow continued to fall on Monday morning, several MBTA commuter rail trains were running late due to the winter weather and other operational issues.
Keolis Commuter Services, the company that runs the commuter rail system, tweeted Monday morning about delays on the Fairmount, Fitchburg, Franklin, Greenbush, Kingston/Plymouth, Middleborough, Newburyport/Rockport and Providence lines.
“Keolis and MBTA crews have been working throughout the night and into today to clear snow from passenger areas and keep track infrastructure like switches clear of ice and snow accumulations,” said Justin Thompson, a spokesman for Keolis. “We’re operating a normal weekday schedule and have seen light ridership so far this morning. There have been some weather-related delays. Average on-time-performance within 15 minutes is 89 percent – as of my writing – meaning nearly 9 out of 10 trains reached their final destination within 15 minutes of the scheduled arrival time.”
