[ARCHIVED] More on MWRTA Service Changes

MWRTA

The MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) is changing services provided in Wellesley. A new micro-transit program called CATCH Connect will replace the existing MWRTA Route 8 bus service in Town. 

Residents are invited to learn more about this new  program during MWRTA virtual office hours on Monday, February 8 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. and on Tuesday, February 15 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Register with the MWRTA in advance to attend. 

The MWRTA Route 8 bus for Wellesley will end on February 15. CATCH Connect will operate within Wellesley and select destinations outside of Wellesley including the Waban and Woodland T Stations, Newton Wellesley Hospital, and the Natick Community Center. 

Using this service, riders can download the MWRTA CATCH app on a smartphone and begin booking trips. Service is provided Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. 

CATCH Connect is now in its final testing period to be ready for riders in the coming weeks. 

For questions or to give feedback, email the MWRTA or call (508) 283-5083.

Please note:  These service changes do not affect the MWRTA Route 1 bus which is the commuter shuttle along Route 9 through Wellesley.
