Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

This is something I hear thrown around endlessly by transit advocates all over but I've never found a reputable source for it. In fact I've never found any source pointing towards this being true.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

While I appreciate the MBTA is having problems, Michelle Wu saying "The MBTA is heading for total shutdown" is blatent fearmongering and just lying. Yes this year has been rough but "total shutdown"...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Just saw an MBTA official on Twitter say they are just using them for training over at track 61. It looks from the picture he posted to be the unumbered pilot cars delivered from China in 2017 which...

Re: Regional Rail (including North-South Rail Link)
