Braintree signals are still busted; riders grow more disgusted

Just in time for the afternoon rush, the T is warning of "moderate" delays on the Red Line to Braintree.

Flea adds:

My MBTA train is stuck at North Quincy and it sounds like an airplane about to take off.

Better Maintenance

By on

The Red Line needs to be better maintained. I feel like were just throwing away money and not getting the proper service we actually deserve for our value. We all should start calling the Red Line the Misery Line.

Better allocation of funds would help

By on

Enough of this "grant" nonsense that only encourages wasteful and unnecessary spending (nee decorative "improvements" to stations that do nothing to improve accessibility and installing a gazillion "I Spy on You" security cameras).

Reforming laws so that the T can actually do work without requiring a gazillion "studies", design groups, public meetings, and the like (things like these are a large part of the reason GLX is so behind schedule and over budget) beforehand would also help.

The Red Line has the second

By on

The Red Line has the second-most-decrepit cars on its rails right now. (The #1 spot goes to Orange.) Nothing will change until the new cars arrive in something like three years, and the older cars - the white-and-red-painted rust buckets - are taken out behind the barn and shot.
