Not exactly fine: Waits, rain on Red Line

Wait at Porter Square for the Red Line

The T isn't announcing any official Red Line delays, but as Jennifer Helfer discovered at Porter Square, just because a train pulls into the station doesn't mean you can get on it.

Meanwhile, Ryan provides some video of the water pouring into one Red Line car from Braintree this morning:

The Blue Line was a disaster too. Major delays. For the second time this week, Monday was bad too. But the T is always a disaster on Monday mornings.

Adam, do you know if Charlie Baker reads Universal Hub every day? HE SHOULD!!!

I think Charlie doesn't read UHub and doesn't care. Charlie has proved over and over again that he just doesn't care as long as he can save money and appear to be "fiscally responsible". Charlie is aware of the problems but just doesn't care because the voters keep voting for him for some reason I will never understand.

My suggestion. Vote against him. (He has made some noise about running for a third term). Vote for candidates who actually care and will fund the T, and ideally candidates who , if they live in the T service area, actually ride the T.

... Because Governor Baker doesn't acknowledge the T, except to criticize it.

Kinda nice, having the Staties drive you from-n-to Swampscott every day.

I waited for 40 minutes while the MBTA didn't bother to run express buses or put out alerts on the line.

EVERYTHING IS FINE!

Well shiver me whiskers. Another delay on the MBTA. Magoo suspects Charlie is hiding in a pile of hay somewhere west of four ninety fay. Magoo.

So, ignore him/her. If Adam allows it, so be it.
Lots of people's posts here annoy me. So what?

State officials to ride the T a certain number of times per month?

Because this is America and people are free to choose how they get around.

To be more exact, the entire MBTA needs a very serious overhaul. Let's hope that Charlie Baker allows that to happen.

No, the MBTA needs to be allowed to function for more than three months without changes to senior leadership or major re-prioritizations. Why do people think that "overhaul! fire them all!" is some sort of magic solution to everything?

Just look at the Cleveland Browns: overhauling themselves every other season for the last 20 years, and famously successful, right?
