Orange Line service resumes in Malden, around region after month-long shutdown

Malden Center ORange Line

  Thousands of Malden residents joined those around the Greater Boston region Monday in returning as Orange Line riders, after the MBTA reopened the service following a month-long shutdown. The 30-day shutdown came following an unprecedented move MBTA officials said was necessary to effect repairs, additions and enhancements to the Orange Line. Both Malden Orange Line stations – located near the northern end of the line at Malden Center and the last stop, Oak Grove on the Malden-Melrose line – returned to service Monday after the shutdown.

  MBTA personnel were out distributing free $5 Dunkin’ gift cards at Orange Line Stations as a sign of appreciation to riders, thanking them for patience over the past month.
