Is the MBTA's Red Line world class? They're busing from Ashmont to JFK/UMass

The T is running buses between Ashmont and JFK/UMass because of some sort of power problem. Like maybe a bit of fire at Ashmont station.

It's really quite simple

Baker and Marty are going to get a massive cash infusion from Bezos to use for T upgrades and maintenance. Problem solved.

When I finally got off the bus at Ashmont, walked the entire length of the station- and there were no fire trucks or firemen, no smell of smoke or signs of fire. Just a lot of transit cops.

I must disagree, my anonymous friend. I find them highly entertaining and a droll, unique way of delivering the routine news that our crumbling transportation infrastructure has yet again... crumbled. Plus i like seeing how far Adam will go to stretch a rhyme, and i am consistently impressed with those abilities.

Counter point

so much depends

a red MBTA
train

glazed with rain
water

and the fucking thing still breaks down all

Counter point II

There once was a red subway train
that died due to much too much rain.
No matter the season,
there's always a reason,
that the T will drive you insane.

Keep up the good work and the continuing search for new rhyming T headlines.

Bullshit

Tens of thousands of people depend on the T daily and the leaders of this state consider the T an annoyance. Their shortcomings and hypocrisy should be detailed somewhere and i appreciate the effort made to spread more of this information.
