Re: Silver Line to Chelsea

Interesting, you take 3 disadvantage communities that the T serves & advocate altering their service (seniors, disabled, & veterans) for some of the few bus stops the T actually owns. (Granted you do...

Re: Dorm Tower @ Emerson College | 1-3 Boylston Place | Downtown

I'm just happy they are keeping the facade of 3 Boylston Place. 1 & 2 probably were the least interesting facades of 1-6.

Re: Dr. Beverly Scott resigns

Re: Seaport Square (Formerly McCourt Seaport Parcels)

I've stayed at Yotel before and actually loved it. Compact rooms and the showers are actually very functional. But that being said, they are pretending their cutting corners as trendy and fashionable.

Re: Driven By Customer 'Service' Parte Dos

Well at today's Board Meeting the Chair called out on what the T is doing about fare evasion because he hears about it "a lot". They did talk about looking to do more with PoP where it was feasible.
