Evening rush hour on the T picks up where it left off in the morning

Death pointed a bony finger at an inbound Red Line train at Charles/MGH shortly before 4 p.m. A trolley on the C Line departed this mortal coil before it could get to Cleveland Circle.

But look on the bright side

By on

Commuter rail passengers continue to get constant alerts (and sign messages for that matter) about being required to change their parking payment app by Feburary 1st.

Glad to see that management has their priorities in order.

And the current parking app

By on

And the current parking app was just fine! I've downloaded the new one and the interface appears to be a downgrade. Was there ever an explanation for the (fairly abrupt) switch in providers?

Broken door

By on

I was on the train right behind the one at MGH - it had a broken door. And while I was annoyed that we were stuck in the tunnel awhile, our conductor made announcements every minute telling us why we were delayed and what was happening (broken door...moving people out of the car...inspector on board...). As much as these daily T breakdowns are crushing my soul, credit where due at least with keeping us informed!

A delay that isn't the T's fault

By on

I'm trying to picture how this would even happen, but apparently somebody put his or her car in reverse and backed into a B-Line trolley near Chestnut Hill Avenue.

Adam, you are killing it with the use of metaphors for T problems today.

Performance art

I really want to start riding the T in the morning dressed as the Grim Reaper. Whenever the train I'm riding on dies, I'll cackle hysterically and sing "Another One Bites The Dust."

I don't have cable, so I have to make my own fun.

What happened?

By on

The T used to be efficient. Now it's clear that management just doesn't care. After all, they most likely drive to work.

What?!?

Are you serious?? How old are you? I'm a fit middle age due to years of giving up and walking. The T can get a *lot* worse before it meets the median awful of my experience. Any efficiency that you have seen is a complete anomaly.

Frankly, MatthewC...

I don't believe that the T ever was efficient, or that management ever did care. They probably always did drive to work, for one thing. The only difference now is that we're paying even more for MBTA services that're getting worse and worse, not better. This is especially true of the Green Line.
