T riders have to keep strong, knowing that things will go wrong

The Red Line was slowed during Rush Hour when a door on one train came up lame; Green Line riders suffered a similar fate due to an entire trolley that couldn't pull its own weight at Government Center.

once fares go up these things will somehow fix themselves

Or conversely

They could abolish the fares and then try to figure out how to pay for maintenance (or even run trains.)

it's crazy

maybe they can somehow ask around and learn how all the road work gets done on all of the state's non-toll roads

Gas Tax, Automobile Excise

And since the RMV sends the revenues it takes in in excess of what it spends on administration, I guess we can add on Registy fees, too.

But hey, after we lob a third of the T's revenue off, maybe we can abolish the gas tax and all tolls for good measure. I mean, what is the value of money, anyway?

Here's an Idea

Let's have a Critical Mass Driving Day. T riders all use or rent cars, leave them where they can in the city (preferably around Beacon Hill).

Yup

This morning, I was on the 87 to Davis from Lechmere.

I was thinking.. "I've been at this new job in Davis for 3 weeks now, and I've only taken the Red Line once. I really should see if it is faster"

*fast forward to work at 9:30am*

*opens Uhub*

Yep this is why I take the 88 and 87 still. Red Line just blows..
