The Red Sox home opener is scheduled for Friday, April 15 at 2:10 PM.
This year, as in the past, we will be using the same Fenway gameday detours that we used in previous seasons with shuttles servicing Brookline Ave. and Boylston St. (Lansdowne St. & Jersey St. are closed to traffic before, during, and after games).
We recommend all commuters plan some extra time for their trip home Friday, April 15, and whenever a home game or Fenway event is scheduled. Please check the following website for the complete Red Sox Schedule: https://www.mlb.com/redsox/schedule/2022-04
All currently scheduled day games on a weekday are listed below. MLB Schedules are subject to change, and additional event that required the use of the Red Sox Detour often occur during the Summer, such as the Fenway Concert Series. Updates will be posted on the MASCO website as well as TransLoc.

MASCO Shuttle Route Updates: (effective June 27, 2022 & July 1, 2022)
As MASCO shuttles continue to normalize, we will be making adjustments to the shuttle schedules that both return service to pre-COVID levels, and improve routes based on new transportation and health data.
While each route is different, system-wide ridership has increased to about 70% of normal MASCO seasonally adjusted ridership levels.
Effective July 1, 2022, MASCO will move parking operations at the Wentworth Lot to the Renaissance & Columbus Ave Garages
Shuttles will depart from the Renaissance Garage in the AM on the same schedule as they do currently from Wentworth, with only the pickup location changing. Shuttles will pickup in the PM at the same locations, with the only change being the dropoff at the Renaissance Garage.
Please see schedules and maps on the MASCO website.
Also note that if you used the JFK PM Route to get to Wentworth, you may still do so. The JFK will dropoff at the Tremont & Whittier Street MBTA Bus stop.
If you currently park at the Wentworth Lot and you have not been reassigned, please reach out to your institution's Parking Office.
Effective Monday, June 27, 2022, the Ruggles BWH PM route will have a slight modification to its trip times. Please see the updated schedule on the MASCO website.
All other MASCO shuttle schedules remain the same.
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback please feel free to reach out to us at the Shuttle Feedback Form at https://shuttlesupport.masco.harvard.edu/
