The hardest part of getting to the Orange Line this afternoon was getting through all the people waiting for a train on one of the commuter-rail tracks.
All those nice suburbanites that don't want to pay for "our trains." SMH
Lock them up!
In cases like this, you enter Back Bay Station via Copley Place.
Just don't ask me how I'm going, because I'm just an idiot.
Yeah, I should've thought of that since I was coming from the BPL, so I was already on that side of Dartmouth ...
You don't walk through the commuter rail platforms to get to the Orange Line. They are entirely separate from each other. Both are down stairways from the street level, but *different* stairways.
I believe Adam is implying that was the line to get onto the platform.
They were corralled on the station level. It was a bit of a genius idea, but they were out to Dartmouth, blocking Orange Line access.
I use Back Bay everyday on the Clarendon Street side. Officials were not letting anybody use the entrance and made everyone walk around the block to the Dartmouth Street side.
Luckily I was using the Orange Line around 3:45 yesterday and didn't have to deal much with the queues winding throughout the building.
