Will this mean a reduced schedule (from the 5-minute headway on peak)?


6.5 minutes instead of 5 minutes.

Per the FMCB meeting today: https://www.mbta.com/events/2018-01-08/ ... rd-meeting (time ~57:00-59:00), the current plan is to get the other two trolleys that have been out of service back in service with parts off of the two crashed ones.
