So the MBTA hearings are over, now what?

The Outraged Liberal considers what's next for T riders, notes the Globe buried a statement by acting T GM Jonathan Davis that the authority is redrafting its plans for the coming year and that it won't be going with either of the two options for dramatic service cuts/fare hikes it proposed in Janauary.

Stop pestering us, we are too

By on

Stop pestering us, we are too busy figuring out how to build new patronage empires with the anticipated casino revenue.

What! You want that money to go to the MBTA?! HA HA HA!

and now, we steal the underpants...

Well, we have to do something now that we've put our pitchforks away temporarily. The fare hikes and proposed service cuts were indeed mob worthy, don't get me wrong.

I actually moved to Boston with one of my requirements being to surrender my driving days and become a well versed public transit-er. Success! And then in the last few years, I've had to keep reassessing if public transit is truly the best choice for my meager budget if it is quickly approaching the same cost as owning a car and possibly carpooling.

We've dodged the bullet for now. But the T is still being dodgy. It will be interesting to see what their next proposal is.
