Last night Matt and I went to the Woodland T station, only to find out that for this weekend buses were replacing the trolleys from Riverside to Resevoir due to construction.
We waited for over 20 minutes for the bus to come, and the bus ride from Woodland to Resevoir was a half hour. (We normally would have been to our destination - the Boylston stop - within a half hour!) It then took another fifteen minutes to get to Boylston. The trolley was rickety and shaky as usual, and I don’t deal with that so well. In fact, as soon as we arrived at the Boylston stop, I ran out of the station and vomited in Boston Common because the ride made me so sick!!!! If anyone who saw me completely sick reading this, that was indeed me you saw. I was not drunk, just a product of a shaky, antiquated MBTA trolley!
Getting home was even worse. It took over an hour for us to get back and the bus was completely PACKED. I could hardly move.
I wonder what kind of construction they’re doing. I’d like them to just get rid of all the green line trolleys and just start from scratch. I don’t think there’s anything that the MBTA can do to make the ride more pleasurable short of updating their entire system.Filed under MBTA, gross stuff |
