Passengers had another rough commute on the D Line this morning as a wire problem caused significant delays on the Newton part of the track. 

Shuttle buses were put in place early this morning to substitute train service between Riverside and Newton Highlands, according to an alert from the MBTA sent around 6:30 a.m. This includes the Riverside, Woodland, Waban and Eliot Stops. 

According to an alert sent at 5:10 a.m., the delays were due to a wire problem at the Waban Station. 

As of 10:45 a.m., those shuttle buses were still in place. Passengers heading from Brookline to Riverside are encouraged to use alternate transportation where possible.

This is the third time in the last week the D Line has had to shut down part of its service due to power problems.

On Saturday, a problem at Longwood Station forced passengers to take the C Line to Cleveland Circle and transfer to the D Line at the Reservoir stop. Shuttle buses also replaced some D Line service in Newton on Friday due to a power problem somewhere on the Newton part of the line. 

Patch will update this story with more information as it becomes available.
