Reminder: Don’t wear virtual reality goggles on the MBTA

The MBTA would like to remind its passengers not to enter an alternate reality while riding the T.

MBTA spokesman Joe Pesaturo tweeted a photo of a man standing in the middle of the Green Line wearing virtual reality goggles on Tuesday morning.

“Not recommended,” he wrote.

“He was fairly steady on his feet but he certainly drew attention to himself,” Pesaturo said in an email. “I was not the only passenger to take a picture.”

The MBTA has previously recommended against wearing virtual reality goggles on the T. That admonishment came after a video several weeks ago showed a goggles-wearing man physically and vocally reacting to what he was watching.


“It’s not advisable,” said Pesaturo said at the time. “The MBTA and Transit Police remind customers of the importance of being aware of their surroundings at all times.”
