 From MetroBoston, inescapable on the T and in doctors' waiting
rooms, today, Nov. 23:

"runs through" = "sometimes skips a day":  "MBTA service to and from
Logan Airport on the Silver, Red, Orange, Blue, and Green lines will
operate with additional service during peak travel periods for the
holidays. The extra service will run through Wednesday and Friday and
will continue through Tuesday and Wednesday."
