Alternatively, the MBTA will provide free alternate weekday bus shuttle service. Three shuttle bus options are available to connect to Commuter Rail Service at Salem Station:

Now I wonder if, between this and the Green Line bustitutions for the Comm Ave bridge work, whether the T will have enough buses to go around without having to pull them off of regular routes.
