Boston Commuter service permanent cancellation

Due to changing commuting demand and unsustainable cost increases, MVRTA is permanently cancelling the Boston Commuter bus from Methuen, Lawrence and Andover effective Tuesday, September 6, 2022.

In appreciation of our loyal riders, we will be offering FARE-FREE service on the route starting August 15, 2022 until the last day of service.

Alternative communizing options include:

  • Commuter Rail: MBTA Haverhill Line Commuter Rail, which runs 13 daily round trips between Lawrence, Andover and Boston. See or call 617-222-3200 for schedule and fare information.
  • Van Pool: MVRTA is working with current Boston Commuter riders, with support from the Van Pool program at MassDOT, seeking to establish a Van Pool with a donated MVRTA van. See Please contact us at 978-469-6878 if you would like to take part in this van pool program.
