That time the Red Line door didn’t close
This one was pretty scary.
A Red Line subway car traveled through subway tunnels with a door open, according to a video posted on YouTube.
The video was posted by Erika Myllmaki, of Quincy, who was traveling from Quincy Center to Andrew Station with her boyfriend, Marwan Mostafa. She said the door was open for four full stops.
The MBTA removed the subway car from service following the video, which went viral on April 1.
“With safety being a top priority, the Red Line has developed a new inspection procedure for the older Red Line cars that have this type of mechanism in the door,” MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo said in an e-mail after the incident. “All of the older Red Line cars are being checked.”
