Re: Charlie Card/MBTA Fare Replacement system

Don't have to worry about equity issues with fare payment systems if the fares are set to what they're supposed to be, free. :) A lot easier to operate too!

Re: Housing a Changing City: Boston 2030

I'm pretty tired of people pointing to Houston as some sort of example of a housing market that works because although units may be cheaper there, Houston has definitely not developed in an ideal...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I've never heard of any constitutional issues getting in the way of the proposed regional ballot initiative bills up on the hill. I've heard of Prop 2 1/2 questions about value capture, but nothing...

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

They should put some sort of ramp near the Shaw memorial and an extension of the sidewalk on Beacon street for accessibility reasons. That kind of improvement doesn't need to be nearly as large as...

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

If you watch the FMCB live stream you can see Secretary Pollack, yet again, taking the time to complain about centenary wire.

Re: City Hall - Redevelopment - Preservation - Relocation

The pyramid is close to working out but just needs to be red, shot a laser beam into outer space, and bellow out the screams of the souls of the damned.

Re: North Washington St Bridge

People are trashing the gondola system because:

1.) It is a different mode of transport, with much less capacity than a train.
2.) It is a vaporware proposal being floated so that everyone can...

Re: Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial | Boston Common | Downtown

There are plenty of places on the Common that need some work or could do with some re-imagining, I don't think anyone would pick the space in between the State House and the Brewer Fountain though,...

Re: Red Line / Blue Line Connector

Ditching North Station and Central Station in lieu of a Union Station that connects to both Aquarium and Haymarket is probably the better bet for giving the Blue Line a direct link to the regional...

Re: Green Line Reconfiguration

Yeah why stop at Dale Street when you can continue to Franklin Park?

In fact you could turn onto American Legion Highway and terminate at the shopping center there for some TOD opportunities.

Re: The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

Slowly downgrading an dismantling the transit system sounds responsible to me. Has nothing to do with any subconscious biases against ~*~other~*~ peoples.

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Re: Fairmount Line Upgrade

Re: I-90 Interchange Improvement Project & West Station | Allston

Unless there is a good bus connection someone wants to propose I'm fine with keeping it at just bike and pedestrian crossings from BU to Beacon Park. But even then you could make a dedicated bus...
