Some sort of "power problem" on the Orange Line means the T is rolling out shuttle buses to replace the Orange Line between Jackson Square and Back Bay. But, the T helpfully advises, you can also jump on the 39 (and then, if you're feeling especially kicky, you can jump off the 39 and get on the E Line).
Among those affected: Mayor Wu, who posted a selfie of herself and another attempted Orange Line rider: Former City Councilor Matt O'Malley, who lives in West Roxbury.

Wu later added that when she and her bus mates got to Back Bay, T workers made them pay again to get back on the T.
