85% includes the mostly-empty trains running in the middle of the day and late at night. Peak-period on-time rates are substantially lower.

Create peak-period congestion tolls on major roads in/out/around Boston... use the money raised to finance key mass transit projects (by which I mean things that will alleviate bottlenecks and speed u more »

The real solution here is to create Back Bay and Longwood exits off I-90 westbound (which I believe is in planning). Storrow is the only option for folks coming from the north, and there will never be more »

We need to put peak-period tolls on the major roads and bridges in/out/around Boston (i.e., those that do not already have them) and consider a similar congestion toll for taking a car into the downto more »

This is exactly backwards. The existing residents mostly live in homes that do NOT have off-street parking. They have come to expect that they have something of a property right in the status quo of s more »

The Big Dig as a smashing success is subject to quite a few caveats. The third harbor tunnel is indeed a smashing success. There are also aesthetic benefits to getting rid of the elevated highway, a more »

I invite anyone who thinks this is a solitary tower in a 2-story residential neighborhood to open google maps and take a look. This is a dense area with many pre-existing buildings.

This quote begs for some follow-up questioning: " Davey explained that it is relatively simple to run peak-hour subway service on Saturday for a special event, but because the T uses an outside contr more »

( would it be cheaper to run two or three car trains than to run six double decked cars?) not meaningfully. in fact, I would bet the fuel cost-savings would be outweighed by the labor cost (weekend more »

Why put any cap on the number of cabs??? Make sure cabs are inspected, insured, licensed, etc., but otherwise, let the market figure out how many cabs to have on the road. I can't believe I am sayin more »

Why don't courts (or, dare to dream, the legislature) limit plaintiffs to money damages in these NIMBY lawsuits. I.e., if you can prove that you have suffered damages, then fine... you get a dollar-a more »

Cutting volume on the RIDE by 20% is change I can believe in. For years, that has been a huge suck on the T's finances. The moves to cut back on eligibility and increase the out of pocket cost per r more »

This is stupid... from Government Center you can hit at least three other stations (Haymarket, Bowdoin and State) with a nine iron, and Park St is a 5 min walk away. There would be no "travel nightma more »

First of all, don't make fun of the weather here, and don't say the weather is the same all the time here, because it's not. In fact, it's two degrees cooler today than yesterday.
Posted 07/18/2013 01:09:11 EDT
The weather out there today is hot and shitty with continued hot and shitty in the afternoon. Tomorrow a chance of continued crappy with a pissy weather front coming down from the north. Basically, it more »

props to Mike Ross for the best / most simple answer. We need to build more housing in Boston and drive the price of rent down. At the end of the day, that is the only thing that will cure these ove more »

"Humidity is back" When did it leave? And according to accuweather and weather channel, what was once a nice forecast for Saturday (low 80s, lower humidity) is now, once again, humid with a good cha more »

I honestly feel for these guys in the second car. It's got to be incredibly boring as they don't serve any real purpose. The answer should be phasing out the second "driver" rather than this crack d more »

There is enough room for both bicycles and cars. All you need to do is modify the roads, especially in the downtown core, and get rid of the lane of parked cars.

They found IEDs at the apartment where she was living. To me, that is probable cause to question her. Why are the feds ASKING???

I want someone to tell me what happens if the state just breaches the settlement agreement with CLF.

The real damage from the meltdown came not from traditional RMBS bonds but rather CDOs that were built out of lower-level MBS tranches. Yes, some of the MBS bonds were filled with subprime, no doc, c more »
