Latest stats from the T show continued growth in ridership - February's numbers are up 8.1% over last February's. The T credits overall employment growth in the region, higher gas prices, better real-time bus and subway arrival info and increased service reliability - which might be news to people who got stuck on the Red Line this morning due to yet another dead train, this time at Harvard. LC reports:
Stuck w/ no air for 45 minutes. 3 people in my car passed out. There was a pregnant woman who fainted. We had to pick her up from the floor. Thank god there was a doctor in our car.
