The new T stop at Assembly on the Orange Line, FLOODED.

Good job MBTA on the platform design at Assembly. #floodzone

MBTA issues 33,000 defective commuter-rail passes

The T is e-mailing companies with large numbers of employees who have commuter-rail zone passes today. One of those workers forwards this copy of the e-mail:

What happened and to how many tickets?
