Progress is Near
Yet another bad day commuting on the MBTA commuter rail, but there are some signs that progress is being made. Today's morning commute was only 15 minutes late and so far the evening commute has been on time.
Key issue with the evening commute is the large number of commuters trying to get home. Every night it's jam pack and takes a lot longer to get home. (One eerie aspect is how quiet the car is with so many people there)
Boston Twitter users are still complaining about various delays on other lines, in particular trains that arrive at stations full and unable to pickup passengers. Framingham isn't out of the woods yet, but it does seem to fair better than other lines.
The next couple of days I'll be working from home so I'll miss all the MBTA drama. I am hoping for better service on Friday.
