One at North Station, one at Reservoir, both making life more interesting for morning commuters.
The MBTA has replaced the applique of Chicken and Beer Guy with Jon Lester at Kenmore station just in time for tonight's game - and a day after somebody complained about the old homage.
Take, for example, this story about a couple who need to replace their home's siding, which requires turning off power to the Riverside Line, which in turn has infuriated some neighbors worried about being unable to get to sleep.
Berfun shows us the scene after the alleged end of morning rush hour at Quincy Center this morning, caused by, oh, who knows, the Red Line being the Red Line. Imagine if the fire department monitored T stops for overcrowding like they do nightclubs.
Gov. Patrick said today riders of increasingly decrepit Red and Orange Line trains will see relief in 2019, when the first of new cars begin arriving under a schedule set by the MBTA board of directors:
The project will deliver at least 226 vehicles; 152 Orange Line cars, replacing the entire fleet of 120, and 74 Red Line cars with an option to increase the... Read more
No, don't worry, ceiling tiles aren't falling on people and the tracks aren't broken or anything. But Paul McNamara says it's really past time to paint over the Josh Beckett memorial.
A.P. Blake alerts us that drivers on the Mattapan Line are being told to watch out for a deer reported on the trolley right of way, outbound, in Milton.
No doubt the cervid is hoofing it on the tracks because the ride now costs more than a buck.
The MBTA reports Malden Police have arrested Douglas Bergeron, who is charged with causing a chain-reaction collision when he allegedly assaulted a T bus driver in Chelsea last week.
Jess was one of the people who helped that woman who fell on the Red Line tracks at Downtown Crossing this past Tuesday (she's the one with the big purse in the video). She recounts the difficulty of pulling somebody up from the tracks, and says that while several people rushed to help, many more just stood there, even as she yelled for... Read more
Transit Police say this guy wasn't going to let the locked doors of a closed Charles/MGH last Friday stop him from getting up onto the platform for a train that wasn't coming because it was 1:46 a.m.: He kicked in a panel of one of the station's doors, went upstairs and after waiting for awhile, took a piss onto the tracks.
MassDOT today released a drawing with one idea of what the interior of the new South Station could look like when the postal annex is moved somewhere else.
The llighter, airier feel envisioned by the rendering would seem to rule out the mixed-use tower once proposed to be built atop the station. In a post to go with the rendering, MassDOT's Klark Jessen... Read more
Transit Police report they are looking for Douglas Bergeron, 32, for an attack they say led to a T bus crashing into a parked car Sunday night.
When caught, Bergeron will be charged with assault and battery on a public employee and interfering with public transportation. 617-222-1050 is the number to call if you spot him.
Outbound at Kendall, just as rush hour was ending.
Don't think of them as "severe delays." Think of them as chances to get to know your fellow riders better.
Also in the works: A two-story CVS with floors connected by an escalator and a Starbucks, the MBTA and the company that handles retail leasing in the station announced today.
Work should begin next month on the two-story, 30,000-square-foot CVS, which will also sell convenience foods and a full-service pharmacy, the T and Equity Office say. Tavern in the Square should open late fall with... Read more
Transit Police report they are looking for this guy for causing the bus he was on to veer into a parked car on Broadway Street in Chelsea around 9:28 p.m. on Sunday, setting off a chain-reaction collision in which two other vehicles were also damaged.
For some reason, the man didn't wait around for police to arrive. If you know him, contact detectives at... Read more
