Arlington’s 77 bus route is included in the MBTA’s new pilot program, which will extend weekend service on all subways and the 15 most popular bus routes until 3 a.m. starting this spring.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick announced the one-year pilot program Tuesday, according to the Boston Globe. The program will be funded by $20 million in state funds, as well as corporate sponsors, the Globe reports.
The 77 bus route runs along Mass. Ave. from the Arlington Heights Busway to Cambridge’s Harvard Square.
It currently shuts down just before 1 a.m. The program is expected to start in March or April -- if it's popular, it could become permanent, according to the Globe.
Late-night fares will be the same as regular fares.
