    More Safer Bike Lanes

    By on

    Bikes - a tried and true technology that requires very little maintenance, doesn't pollute the city and keeps Bostonians healthy.

    It really is a no-brainer.

    I'll say this much

    By on

    If there's one nexus of places and events that is the least sucky, an inbound train dying at JFK/UMASS is the best of the worst. I mean, there is a separate inbound platform with trains that are not affected by the breakdown and there is a track to shunt the dead train to nearby (along with of course the maintenance facilities.)

    Still, It's gotta suck for the Quincy/Braintree people behind this train.
