MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles Prepares for Busy Vacation Week

Danvers Branch will be closed thru Friday, February 21

BOSTON – Friday, February 14, 2014 – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Registry of Motor Vehicles Division is preparing for a busy week at branches across the Commonwealth. All offices will be closed in observance of Presidents’ Day on Monday, February 17, 2014.  

With the shortened week, school vacation, and annual Presidents’ Day car sales promotions, Registrar Celia Blue is expecting an influx of customers at the RMV’s 30 branches and is encouraging customers to perform their transactions, if possible, online at MassRMV.com. Approximately three dozen transactions may be performed online. 

A facilities issue today forced the Danvers branch, located at 100 Independence Way, to close. The branch will remain closed through next week and RMV employees assigned to that location will be deployed to handle customer transactions at other branches in the region. Branch and service alerts are posted regularly on MassRMV.com.  

In 2009, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) was created to unify the state’s various transportation agencies. MassDOT now includes the Highway Division, the MBTA and Rail Transit Division, the Aeronautics Division, and the Registry of Motor Vehicles.  MassDOT is committed to providing a safe and reliable transportation system to all those who travel in the Commonwealth and works to deliver excellent customer service. MassDOT has been nationally recognized for its innovative approach to transportation, including the Accelerated Bridge Program, the “Where’s My Bus and Train?” apps and “Fast 14” work.  For more information, visit MassDOT at our website: www.mass.gov/massdot  blog: http://blog.mass.gov/transportation/, or follow MassDOT on twitter at https://twitter.com/MassDOT and Facebook at www.facebook.com/massdotinfo.
