The MBTA warned that people heading to Boston’s First Night celebrations on New Year’s Eve should expect extra travel time after the T pulled several Orange Line vehicles this week.

T is operating 8 Orange Line trains instead of the usual 10 after inspectors discovered a “failure in an electrical grounding component on an Orange Line car” this week, inspecting all cars on the track and The department was taken out of service for repairs. The agency said in a statement Friday night.

With fewer trains, passengers on the Orange Line are experiencing 12- to 14-minute “headway” or waiting times between trains, Mr T said.

“Riders on the Orange Line will continue to experience longer advances as MBTA continues inspections and makes necessary repairs,” the statement said.

According to the MBTA website, the MBTA does not collect fees from 8:00 pm on Saturday until the end of service on Sunday morning.

According to the site, all subway lines will run on Saturday, New Year’s Eve, with increased service after 3pm. The last train of the night departs downtown by 2:20am on Sundays, except for the E junction on the Green Line, where the last train departs at 2:12am.
