If peaceful protests by people of color take place this weekend will you lock down the stations?
Took it in to town last week, hardly anyone on train, still delays leaving stations for schedule adjustments.
The first part explains the second. If your train left too close to the one in front, or caught up to it because it was delayed, your train would be empty, and would need to wait for the train in front to clear each station.
Is this a promise or a threat? Hard to tell when the T is promising something.
When will ALL buses return to their regular schedules? Many buses have infrequent schedules to begin with - it makes it hard for those without cars to get around when the buses are still running on a Saturday schedule.
The new schedules for summer come out on June 21, with some expanded Saturday service on certain bus routes, especially the high frequency, high volume key routes.
The buses will return to the regular schedule on June 29, if Phase 3 is approved.
EDIT 6/30/20: They should return around July 6 (Monday).
There's no need to rush into things.
Well we are rushing back to opening stores, offices, restaurants, etc, it seems the mbta should increase as well, especially considering the need to space out. I take it you aren't commuting by public transit to work now?
So Baker announces phase 2 with 24 hours notice Sunday, but didnt coordinate increasing MBTA service. A lot of the people going back to work and those that worked through the pandemic are lower income and depend on the T, but Bakers chaotic management means they will be forced to commute without being able to social distance for two weeks.
The Globe was more detailed in Baker changing the MBTAs service plan to increase service at the beginning of phase 2.
The MBTA says they arent able to because of staffing, but that should have been taken into account in going forward with the next phase. Wake up Baker, rushing and bungling reopening may result in having to shut down again.
