Boston-bound trains suspended; bus service continues to Logan

NEWBURYPORT -- Commuter train service to Boston has been suspended from the Newburyport station, and bus service is limited as authorities shut down Boston in their search for the fugitive marathon bomber.

The Newburyport commuter rail station had no train service at all today.

C&J bus service, which operates out of a park and ride lot at the intersection of Interstate 95 and Storey Avenue, suspended bus service to South Station in Boston today. However, bus service remained unaffected to Logan International Airport, which remained open.

Governor Deval Patrick asked people who live in the entire city of Boston, as well as the nearby communities of Watertown, Waltham, Newton, Belmont, Cambridge, to “shelter in place” — stay inside and not open their doors to anyone, except police with proper identification.
