Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Im very skeptical of MBTA AFC 2.0, but this puts things in perspective.

NJT appears to be thinking about a new fare system...which is more like Charlie than AFC 2.0

Re: NYC Architecture and Development

There was a Boston thread where we were discussing a super nasty blank wall. Does NYC have a law against them, because every time a giant blank wall is built, they clad it with the good stuff.

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

The results of the big dig benefit everybody. What benefits will you get from this ugly tower and the 1,000+ new vehicle trips it generates every day.

I'm all for new bus gates, but how about we...

Re: South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

How is this wonderful tax revenue going to help every commuter that suffers 3 or so years of bullshit so this ugly glass penis and its 893 parking spots can be built?

I agree that they shouldnt allow this to start until the south station expansion into the post office is finished.

I too am shocked that a member of the Republican party would push for transit fare hikes well about the rate of inflation while holding the gas tax low. Shocked

Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

If the MBTA rolls this out like SEPTA, it will be like stepping back to 2006.

If the MBTA rolls it out like a competent European agency, this will be great.

Any bets on which end result we will...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

There is sort of a chicken and egg issue. Every major transit system in the country could benefit from DMU on some lines, and many would like one, but no one wants to go first.

Re: Dock Square Parking Garage | 20 Clinton Street |

I like it but I understand why it failed. If they kept the same mass but a different architecture (not glass) I think it would do well
