silver line 1 from Boston Logan airport detour 10/22

We were planning to go to the South Station T station on the silver line 1 bus on Sunday, Oct. 22. I have just read that there is a detour that day. I have read about it but do not really understand what it means. Does this mean the bus will not come to the airport at all or that it might take longer to get

to South Station? Does it mean we have to get on it at an alternate location?

According to the "T", Silver Line service will need to operate on the surface roads between World Trade Center Station and South Station due to the construction of a new Massport parking garage near World Trade Center Station. I don't think this will be of any consequence for you. This line is notoriously slow anyway, so maybe it might even speed it up.

Exactly as Allan said- I drove through the South Station area this afternoon and saw the Silver Line buses running on the streets; they are usually in a dedicated tunnel underground so it surprised me to see them above ground. They still stop at South Station. If you are planning to use the subway at South Station you will have to go down the stairs into the subway station where you are dropped off. I saw "T" employees standing by the buses, so if you have any questions, they can assist you.

Was also gonna use it soon. If the Silver Line now drops off outside on surface road will it still be a free transfer into the Red Line? Or was it only this past weekend? Thnks!
