At 8:54 a.m., Rebecca, who took this photo, reported she'd been standing at the Sutherland Road Green Line stop for more than 20 minutes, and that she was a mere newcomer there - she could still feel her feet.
At the very same time, Katherine Delaney posted a photo showing things were almost as bad on the Red Line - even more crowded, but at least a train was running.
Transit Police say a driver trying to make a left turn ahead of a trolley was cited for a collision last night that left his car with damage, sent a couple of people to the hospital for observation but left the trolley unscathed.
An outbound Green Line trolley hit a car around 8:10 p.m. at Comm. Ave. and Pleasant Street.
B Line service was halted; Comm. Ave. outbound was shut. An MBTA spokesman said the cause of the "minor accident" remains under investigation. One of the two people in the car complained of back pain.
El Pelon Taqueria posted this photo of a track fire near Lake Street around 8 a.m.; not long after, the T exchanged buses for trolleys between BC and Babcock.
Jess Mullen, who lives in Roslindale, just got a job near Packard's Corner in Allston. That means taking a B train out from Copley. And that means being sucker punched by the B line:
... Day 1 (Tuesday): I was pissed because I was waiting at Park St and it felt like the center of the earth. NO TRAINS CAME FOR 20 MINUTES. Then when they did come, they were the D and E before the B.
Day 2 (yesterday): At BU Central, they decided the train would go non-stop to Harvard Ave. Because we were on BU campus, the ground was covered in the previous night's vomit, and the smell wafted up to all the people crowded on the ghetto platform. ...
I donâ€™t live at Washington St in Brighton.
I donâ€™t have any friends living at Washington St.
I donâ€™t work at Washington St.
I donâ€™t happen to have any reason to be at Washington St. on most days.
Yet, I find myself standing there almost every day thanks to the MBTA.
