Re: MBTA Bus & BRT

I can't see how the infrastructure costs for catenary are at all logical when battery-electric buses are so close on the horizon.

Re: North-South Rail Link

Wait, are you comparing summer '17 traffic to current fall traffic? It's lighter every summer from every direction.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

The vast majority of taxes you pay are indexed to inflation by default. Transportation use taxes are the only significant taxes in my life that are not.

Re: Assembly Row (Assembly Sq Redevelopment) | Assembly Square | Somerville

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

Seems like a 3rd escalator would have been a smart thing here for reliability purposes.

Re: Encore Boston Harbor Casino | Everett

Yeah, in my experience the CT casinos do fine with the two lane roads EXCEPT for when there is a big event.

Re: Four Seasons Tower @ CSC | 1 Dalton Street | Back Bay

I think it's been made abundantly clear in this thread that everybody knows the exact height of this building and thus can provide this with a high degree of precision.

Re: MIT East Campus - Kendall Square Gateway | Cambridge

The new Lechmere station is just across the street, not so much a substantial move. The additional walking distance will be more than offset by the improved headways.

EZ Ride has a $2 cash fare...

Re: Biking in Boston

These plans are over a year old, but are probably a decent idea of what's happening. Main/Vassar is fully protected.

Re: Comm Ave Bridge Replacement.

Do you live under a rock? I've heard this on the radio, on TV, on here, on reddit, seen it on message boards, and heard people talking about it.

Re: Marriott Moxy Hotel | 240 Tremont Street (Parcel P-7A) | Theater District

Looks like it's transitioning the load to allow for the cantilever over the sidewalk.

Re: General MBTA Discussion Thread

I was under the understanding once upon a time that some of this planned service for the NHHS included one or more trips Boston <-> New Haven via Hartford/Springfield. Is that still in the cards?
