Re: Logan Flight Additions

Thats a really hefty schedule.

Also, in those yeas you could fly from Bedford to Trenton, which would have been good for me now

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

I agree with this Logan Express talk.

I think too much of the Logan Express network is focused on suburban folks instead of people in the city.

Yes, you can get to Logan using a combo of trains...

Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

AFAIK, Google doesnt show any BRT line on their transit layers - not even in cities like Mexico City that have real BRT. They also dont highlight ferries, even in cities where Ferries are a critical...

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

I was never a clubber. But I do end up at a club 1-2 times a year because a friend (or my gfs friend) celebrates their bday at one.

Closing at 2am is lame sausage.

Re: Martin's Park | Children's Wharf | Fort Point

Odd, I thought the under area had bathrooms, but nope, just 5 employee parking spaces. I think there is a toilet but just for them.

That puts the state even deeper in the red.

Once you throw in the bureaucracy behind tickets + the appeal process, it costs more than then $100 you get from them.

Same reason why police...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

10 evaders per hour per station = $22.50 in lost revenue

Im pretty sure the cost of having two cops (since they never stand along) posted at the station to catch these ten folks is well in excess...

Re: New Red and Orange Line Cars

The problem is when a stop is requested, someone exits through the front, and the driver doesnt open the back door for the other people
