SouthCoast – Boston Express
Service from Fairhaven, New Bedford, and Taunton to Boston’s South Station
Unfortunately, ridership between South Coastal Massachusetts and Boston remains very low. Our service continues to operate with a reduced number of inbound trips to Boston in the morning (2), arriving at 6:30 and 8:30 AM. The afternoon schedule remains unchanged. Weekend service remains suspended until further notice.
As of 9/4, we have added limited service for UMASS Dartmouth with a Friday afternoon express bus to Boston South Station, and Sunday evening return service.
We will continue to monitor passenger counts daily and add capacity when it is justified. Any questions or concerns can be emailed to BostonCommuter@dattco.com.
