Boston transit suspends service due to Irene

Boston's commuter transit system has suspended all service.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority says it stopped all subway, bus and commuter rail service as of 8 a.m. Sunday as Hurricane Irene twists toward Massachusetts.

Officials say suspending service will allow transit workers to make sure the system is operating for Monday morning's commute.

Transit systems up and down the coast had similar shutdowns.
