WHERE IS THIS $15 GARAGE? I need to get a monthly pass there immediately.

Awesome if you're happy, and it sounds like you are. Great.But you're comparing apples and fish. How's the waterfront in Arkansas?

I live in Boston, but have to pay a toll to return from a friend's house in East Boston. We don't need more toll roads. We need our roads fixes, and we need a city that doesn't allow construction and more »

Never heard of meter cards, and naturally they don't work at walk up pay points. Just like Charlie Cards don't work on the commuter rail (can't use a monthly bus/subway pass in Zone 1A, you can buy a more »

No, because we all benefit from a usable public transportation system, just as we all benefit from decent roads and safe bridges even if we don't use them. Trying to apportion according to use is fool more »

Or fixing the Charlie Card readers on buses and in stations so everyone is actually paying and not just getting waived on because the machines are broken yet again. more »

Yes, another gift to the rich who can afford it and a screwing to the ordinary person who just needs a place to park for an hour twice a month. more »

Comment on: Boston?s sticky sunscreen problem
Posted 07/31/2015 03:01:15 EDT
The bigger question is why didn't re-testing happen when they changed from regular sunscreen to the organic kind. You know, before they mass produced the dispensers. more »

Comment on: So is this the end of the Boston Olympics?
Posted 07/27/2015 12:39:21 EDT
There's a lot more than "10 people on Twitter" opposed to the Olympics being in Boston. The IOC won't decide until 2017. That will leave 7 years to build the facilities and Olympic Village -- remember more »

What's all about me? I was in the bus, not the poor soul stuck outside. Why all bus drivers can't be kind is beyond me. It's not like someone wanted them to stop randomly. Sorry billyfab, but you miss more »
Posted 07/20/2015 11:00:08 EDT
Nice story. I am not opposed. I just want to know why the driver of the #10 will slam the door closed even when people are running for the bus and the bus hasn't pulled away and still solidly inside t more »
