Re: T construction news

Worcester is the end of the Worcester line but not the end of the rail line. Especially with eventual goals of high speed east west rail Springfield to Boston which will pass through there. And even...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

They had a rendering of the improved park Street in the GM report from this meeting, linked above I believe. It means a complete replacement of the signage with the new signage they've been rolling...

Re: Congestion toll in Boston?

I hate to say it, I really do, but late night free entry might encourage the wrong kind of behavior in MBTA stations. More begging, more homeless encampments, more harassment etc. While those are all...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

They also tried overnight service a few years ago remember and found dissapointing ridership, increased costs, more police required and few benefits. For now I don't think it's the time. Traffic is...
