Last month, the MBTA announced a contest in which anyone could design what could be the next MBTA map.
Fire up Google Maps to find out where to catch the bus, and it won't help much; dozens or hundreds of stops are displayed in the wrong locations, have the wrong bus lines associated with them, or aren't shown at all.
Try this mess at Brigham Circle, for example. You'll spend a long time waiting for the 39 on Tremont Street, yet that's where Google Maps now declares the 39 stops; the stop for the 39 on Huntington Avenue is gone.
New game: Where's Mumbles?
(Google Maps has a history of getting landmarks in Boston wrong. A year or two ago, they had Kendall Station about 2 blocks east of its real location.)
Hey, if anyone is looking for great, off-the-beaten-path places to take a date, you might want to check out MAP BOSTON. Tons of great locations featured, and a calendar/planner tom plan out your romantic adventures.
Ok, so I've been living in Boston for 2 years and there's still so much for me to see. The internet is nice but so impersonal, and I for one don't like PDAs and Blackberry type of things. My biggest help has been MAP BOSTON. For anyone who graduated recently and and wants to add a little adventure into their daily organization, MAP BOSTON is made for you. Imagine a day planner fused with a city guide for locals. It rocks, it's fun, and it's worth checking out.
