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

That's only one line that interferes with the NEC for most of its distance. Yes there are other lines that interfere north of Readville, but that's for a short distance that is mostly triple tracked...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I don't see the need for a South Station to Seaport ferry, or even a North Station to South Station one. Most of the Seaport is an easy walk from South Station, and parts that aren't have the Silver...

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

True. At least when I lived in Andover, power would go out for days at a time on average about once a year. Everyone on the street where I lived had generators.

But yes I'd hope the Commuter...

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

I'm not sure about the reliability. Power is frequently knocked out to suburban communities during storms, that would affect the commuter rail too.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Issue is that a ferry can't drop you off at the terminal.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

They have started a ferry between Longjoy Wharf and the Seaport. It's a private ferry though, paid for by businesses in the seaport.

Re: Crazy Transit Pitches

Re: Union Square D2.1 | 10 Prospect Street | Somerville

Yes that's what I was thinking. The Green Line will be nice, but it will still involve a commute into North Station and than a reverse commute using the Green Line to Union. Not the worst thing in...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

That would only make sense if the orange line were to branch out. Without branches it would be easy to change the lettering on the train if say the Orange were extended to Roslindale.

But if you...

Re: What's everyone drinking...?

I'm a big fan of the beers at Mighty Squirrel in Waltham. They make some pretty good NEIPA's, and their stouts/porters are pretty good too. One of my favorite breweries in the Boston area.

I'm...

How much of this is office/lab and how much of this is residential?

Re: Winthrop Center | 115 Winthrop Square | Financial District

After San Francisco MIllennium is definitely going to make sure that the foundation is drilled nice and deep.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

It's a 20 min walk from north station to the financial district anyway.

And the red has more capacity at Porter than the orange has at North Station (can't get on between 8-9).

Personally I hop...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

Yep you're right, I stand corrected.

Porter is also a good option for Fitchburg riders working near South Station and the Seaport, not just Cambridge.

Re: Biking in Boston

Even with the tunnel open, there are still lots of people who walk from North Station to downtown office buildings. Having a bike path on the sidewalk without any curb separation is ludicrous. ...

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

The view from the pike will likely be similar, though to be fair it will be blocked by other towers.

At least they lowered prices on weekends, though as you said it honestly should be free for many MBTA lots on Saturdays/Sundays.

Re: Biking in Boston

I have to say, I think having bike lanes in the middle of the street like at North Station is dumb. I never see people actually utilizing those bike lanes. It's mainly used as an island for North...

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

For ridership yes, but I think if you look at percentage of riders getting off the Fitchburg line at Porter would be pretty high.

This is like the Pierce in Fenway, one angle that looks good.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

I mean it would be nice to extend the orange to reading and run the Haverhill through the wildcat, but that'll never happen.

Re: Reasonable Transit Pitches

What's the point of the 3rd orange line track? Wouldn't it be better to just make it a 2nd commuter rail track.
