The Globe reports.
Transit Police report a man on the inbound Fitchburg Line tracks near Park Street was hit and killed by a train around 12:20 p.m.
The Globe reports the state's looking to save some money; proposal would also make cuts to the Ride.
Just got this alert from the T:
Commuter rail will operate Blue Level service Tues, 3/14. Trains shaded in blue on paper schedules will not run and expresses will run local.
Melissa shows us the board at North Station this fine rush hour.
Somebody's converted an abandoned pay phone in the lower parking lot at the Roslindale Village commuter-rail stop into a tiny free library.
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.
North Station is so crowded with people trying to get on a commuter-rail train out of town that officials have shut the doors to the station. Meanwhile, people are continuing to pile up outside, so much so that Boston Police have shut Causeway Street to keep all those people safe.
Transit Police report a 50-year-old woman was hit and killed by an outbound Franklin Line train near the Guild Street bridge around 8:20 p.m.
Foul play is not suspected.
The day after Keolis issued a statement about improved reliability on commuter rail, signal problems at South Station caused some major delays.

What's the easiest and quickest way to get from North Station to South Station?
Currently I take the orange to the red line but that is usually a 20 min affair in the morning and worse at 5pm.
I'm thinking of getting an electric scooter or boosted board.
Ed. note: I originally linked to a story that made it sound like the state wanted to ditch Keolis.
The Globe reports that should Charlie Baker run for re-election and win, the state won't extend Keolis's contract past its current 2022 expiration date. But officials say that doesn't mean Keolis can't rebid to keep running commuter rail, just that the state would want to hear other bids as well.
