Boston transit resuming service Monday

Officials with Boston's commuter transit system says most of its regular weekday service will resume Monday.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority suspended subway, bus and commuter rail service at 8 a.m. Sunday as Tropical Storm Irene rolled into Massachusetts, toppling trees and power lines.

Transit officials said Sunday evening that crews removed trees and large branches from tracks, and are working with the city to finish clearing bus routes of storm debris.

The MBTA says there still is some concern about the Green Line's above-ground Riverside branch. Crews are working to get the line ready for the morning commute.
