Wire woes whack Riverside riders

The T's broken out its "severe warning" alert this morning for the Riverside line, whose riders are being asked to seek alternate means of transportation between Riverside and Reservoir due to a wire that has discovered it's subject to the law of gravity.

The T assembled buses for a relief effort. Not long after, riders on the 57 line started reporting delays as some of their buses were pulled out of service to deal with the growing throngs of Riverside riders.

No, the post-9AM commute

will remain lousy as they continue to loop Riverside trains at Government Center only to hold them for at least ten minutes at Park Street (as I witnessed on my way in today). This will result in continued slowdowns, as all westbound trains are being forced to berth on a single platform. This "single track" berthing also creates unnecessary confusion for passengers as well, further slowing down the service.
