It's been a miserable time to be a Red Line rider this week as shuttle buses between Park Street and JFK/UMass, as well as the entire Ashmont branch, are somehow slower than the actual subway trains.

Blue Line riders can rejoice, though: nearly all the speed restrictions on the line have been eliminated, according to the T.
