BOSTON (CBS) – The new Orange Line trains are out of service for now. The MBTA said there’s a problem with a door on one of the cars, and they want to replace a part on all the new trains.
The new cars debuted last month. A T spokesperson said fixing the doors comes at no cost to the agency.
The T hopes to have the repaired trains back on the tracks by Monday.
“I’m glad that this was discovered quickly and appropriately before it caused anybody a problem,” Gov. Charlie Baker told reporters Thursday.
The MBTA has made a $2 billion investment in the Orange and Red Lines. There will be 152 new Orange Line cars in service by 2022.
