Melissa shows us the board at North Station this fine rush hour.
Transit Police report they are looking for this guy for an alleged case of pud pulling directed at two women on the Red Line at Harvard on Jan. 27.
If he looks familiar, contact detectives at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous tip to 873873.
If caught, he'll face a charge of lewd and lascivious behavior, Transit Police say.
Somebody's converted an abandoned pay phone in the lower parking lot at the Roslindale Village commuter-rail stop into a tiny free library.
The Dorchester Reporter reports the money will keep the Mattapan Line's historic trolleys running while the T figures out what to do to maintain service in the long run.
Boston Police report a man driving a minivan reported stolen in Quincy last night crashed head on into an MBTA bus stopped at Talbot Avenue and Lithgow Street around 9:50 a.m.
The driver was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The T driver and four passengers were also taken to local hospitals for care of non-life-threatening injuries.
Those pre-faregate inspections are just the same old anti-terrorism checkpoints they've done for years and have nothing to do with ICE, Transit Police tweet tonight:
Transit Police officers do NOT enforce Federal Immigration laws. We are here to serve EVERYONE.
Security Inspection Program has nothing to do w/immigration laws/enforcement. Counterterrorism layer only.
The T reports "minor" delays into town due to a train that met its maker at Andrew Square.
The Globe reports on a tinkerer at an MBTA machine shop who figured out how to put rail wheels on a snowblower and dramatically improve snow fighting on T tracks.
A dead train at Copley is putting the kibosh on the idea of using the Green Line to get out of town quickly this rush hour.
This morning's switch problems at 128 have morphed into signal problems at Canton Junction and so Keolis is warning of Trump-level (you know, yuuge) delays on the Providence and Stoughton lines.
Red Line riders know the drill.
Keolis was blaming Amtrak signal problems for the major delays and cancellations on the Providence and Stoughton lines this morning, but Amtrak says, no, not signal problems - switch problems, near the 128 station in Westwood:
Due to a switch outage near Route 128 Station, Amtrak and commuter trains are experiencing delays moving through the area. Amtrak engineering forces are on the scene and are working to resolve the issue as quickly and safely as possible.
Transit Police report arresting a Cambridge man they say put on an angry show just outside the Ashmont T station during yesterday's storm.
Police say John Gearty, 29, was in the process of being ejected from the station around 4:30 p.m. for being loud and obnoxious "for no legitimate reason," when he decided to crank things up a notch: Read more.
Once again, the T survives a big storm only to have issues the next morning. At 8:50 a.m., Martin Zero reported:
Stuck at Charles/MGH for more than 20 mins. Doors are open We're freezing!!
Boston firefighters responded to the Forest Hills Orange Line station around 4:30 p.m. for what turned out to be a flame-shooting switch. The fire was quickly doused with firefighting chemicals, but power was shut on the inbound track so that firefighters and the T could investigate what happened. BFD declared an "all out" about 18 minutes later.
Only "minor" delays on the Orange Line, the T reports.
The T says service was pretty durn good on the four subway lines thanks to all the investments in things like new third rails and plows and dispatch centers.
So far this morning, the T has reported Red Line problems that include dead trains at South Station and near Ashmont, signal and switch problems on the Braintree branch and at Park Street. Green Line trolleys ran even slower than usual on the C line.
But as of 9:50 a.m., the T says everything's back to normal.
The T has hooked 80 of plows to the front of Red and Orange Line trains today to try to smash that demon snow away from the trains' air scoops so it won't short out the motors like it did so disastrously in 2015 (but just in case). Also, it will have a jet-powered Snowzilla like this to blast the snow away.
