Mavericks, Celtics clash in 2024 NBA Finals
The 2024 NBA Finals are set. Will Jayson Tatum and the Celtics surpass the Lakers for most titles won, or will Luka and the Mavs bring home Dallas' first championship since 2011?

The MBTA is launching free rides to help people get to Boston to watch Game 2 of the Celtics-Mavericks series on Sunday.

The MBTA will running a free Haverhill service on the Commuter Rail on Sunday between Oak Grove, Malden Center and North Station, according to an MBTA press release.

The train, which the agency has dubbed “The Lucky Express,” will leave Oak Grove at 6:42 p.m., leave Malden Center at 6:45 p.m. and arrive at North Station at 7 p.m. for the NBA Finals game.

“We’re committed to getting fans to the game conveniently, and the Lucky Express offers a solution to helping fans arrive at North Station to cheer on the Celtics,” said MBTA General Manager and CEO Phillip Eng in a statement.

Eng said the MBTA is “enhancing” Green Line service and offering free rides between Oak Grove, Malden Center and North Station to ensure Celtics fans have more options for travel.

The Green Line will see the addition of three two-car trains to North Station Sunday evening, as well as the extension of the C-branch to North Station, providing a one-seat connection.

While some trains are being added, the MBTA said the weekend will still see service suspended on the Orange Line between North Station and Oak Grove for important upgrade work.

The closure begins around 8:45 p.m. on Friday. It will continue through June 7 and 8.

“Free and accessible shuttle buses will make all stops between North Station and Oak Grove,” the MBTA said.

The MBTA has not announced plans for additional free-ride promotions for the next few games in the series beyond Sunday's.

"Paid parking is in place at Oak Grove, Malden Center, and North Station throughout the weekend," the press release said.
