Once a public transit fan, always a public transit fan

Our roving UHub photographer assures us that's Mike Dukakis getting onto a crowded Green Line trolley at Longwood this morning - just like he used to do when he was governor.
Like the job UHub is doing? Consider a contribution. Thanks!
Oh, I think everyone who
Oh, I think everyone who rides the D Line has seen him at least once. He's definitely a T regular.
Once on the Red Line
Michael Dukakis will always get points in my book for strongly advocating for car alternatives, and practicing what he preaches.
While I have never seen him
While I have never seen him on the Green Line, I always seem to see him in Kenmore Square, he loves hanging locally.
Wouldn't it be nice to see
Wouldn't it be nice to see Mumbles and his cronies use the T instead of the city's fancy fleet of SUVs?
Mumbles and his cronies are
Mumbles and his cronies are so worried about the Italian earthquake victims that they're going to go there to help out.
Mumbles for one is a "2seata" his girth would take up to many available seats.
Second he has a serious issue with balance which would most likely result in train delays due to a medical issue.
Or a sitting Governor
Who actually believed enough in public transportation to take it to work regularly, instead of using it for a quick headline?
Doesn't he walk around
Doesn't he walk around Brookline picking up random trash?
Yep, saw him over a decade ago walking around Longwood area picking up cigarette butts.
I see him at the gym
I see him at the gym sometimes - the guy has way more stamina than I do, and I must be almost half his age. Good for him for keepin' on with the T.
A good guy, and a class act
and by all accounts a beloved professor (at NU).
But I'm reminded of his early gubernatorial days, when the left on Beacon Hill - among them Barney Frank - was upset at Dukakis. In response to a question about the Duke's commuting habits, Frank snapped: I don't mind that he takes the T to work, I mind that he gets off at the State House.
His head looks smaller
than it used to.
