BOSTON — Officials with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority will host a public meeting at Needham, Mass., town hall on Aug. 24 to discuss the impacts of commuter rail service due to positive train control installation on the agency’s Needham commuter rail line.

PTC work is scheduled to start on the 9.3-mile branch line beginning Sept. 2.

The work will suspend all weekend service on the route through Nov. 18. Weekday service will not be impacted by the PTC work.

Alternative bus options will be made available during the suspension of service.

During the agency’s meeting later this month, MBTA officials will discuss the scope of the work and the specifics of service changes.

The agency will finish PTC work on its Newburyport-Rockport line later this month and is about to launch a similar project on its Lowell line.
