First Night Message From Chief Green

First Night Celebration is a family oriented atmosphere for all to enjoy.  It is anticipated that approximately 400,000
people will attend. To that end, it is requested that you utlize the MBTA in traveling to and from Boston's First Night Celebration. From 8PM until the end of service, the MBTA will not be collecting fares. The MBTA will have additional resources on hand and Transit Police Officers (both uniformed and plainclothes) will be on duty throughout the MBTA system to ensure a safe and efficient travel. I ask that you act responsibly and be respectful to one another. Additionally, please be mindful of young children, the elderly and persons with disabilities while riding the MBTA. The consumption and/or transportation of alcohol and unruly behavior will not be tolerated.

 From everyone at the MBTA Transit Police Department, Happy New Year. Remember, while riding the T if you "See Something Say Something." To contact the Transit Police in an emergency call 617-222-1212 or 911. You can also use our MBTA SeeSay app or text us at 873873 to report unusual or suspicious behavior or provide information anonymously to our investigators about criminal activity.
Chief Green.
