TCal

A calendar of planned service disruptions on MBTA rapid transit.

📅 Subscribe

To get these events in your own calendar, copy this iCal URL and add it to your calendar app:

https://tcal.digitalcora.net/alerts.ics

The process for doing this varies, but in the end you’re looking for a box you can paste a URL into (not something that asks you to upload a file). Look for words like “feed”, “sync”, or “subscribe”. If stuck, try a web search for your calendar app name plus “ical feed”.

Curious about what’s in the feed? To inspect it in your browser without being prompted to download a file, replace .ics with .txt in the URL.

⚠ Limitations

💬 Report an issue

  1. Check whether your issue also appears in the alerts on mbta.com. If so, please report it to the MBTA. The calendar is auto-generated from alerts data, and I can’t fix issues that originate there.

  2. Check TCal’s open issues on GitHub to see if your issue has already been reported. If it’s there, I know about it and will respond when I can.

  3. Otherwise, feel free to submit a new issue! (requires a GitHub account)

💻 About the author
