Shortly after 4 p.m., former City Councilor Matt O'Malley was on one of the spiffy new bing-bing-bing Orange Line trains with the fancy computerized displays and those oh-so-nubbly plastic seats, just riding like a cloud, when it pulled into Mass. Ave. - and promptly had to be taken out of service because the doors wouldn't close.
All passengers must now figure out alternative ways home. For some of us, it means late day care pickup. For others, it means being late for work.
I hope this new car is still under warranty. Do better, MBTA!
At 3:56 p.m., the MBTA reported:
Orange Line experiencing southbound delays of up to 15 minutes due to a train with a door problem at Mass Ave.
