The Merrimack Valley Regional Transportation Authority will stop running its Boston commuter bus from Andover, Lawrence and Methuen on Tuesday, Sept. 6. The authority cited “changing commuting demand and unsustainable cost increases” in a notice to riders posted last month.
MVRTA said it is working with its current commuters to establish a van pool under MassDOT’s Van Pool program with a donated MVRTA van. Call 978-469-6878 if you want to participate in the Van Pool. Otherwise, MVRTA recommends commuters use the MBTA’s Haverhill line on the commuter rai, which runs 13 daily trips between Lawrence, Andover and Boston.
