Yeah, the Silver Line's dual mode thing never made sense to me.

Also, be mindful of the front-door-only policy, when using the Green Line.

I hope you enjoy your stay in Boston. Though, that word can't really be used, not with our public transport.

It's horribly third world (seriously, look at it!) and limiting Boston's growth potential. Boston's politicians don't care about developing the city, only about keeping their jobs, and there are NIMBYs everywhere that block any potential improvements. I go to university in Boston and the public transport is just not a convenient way to get around, Boston is perfect for biking though!

What are you talking about third world?? Explain what's so third world about it...Boston has one of the easiest and best public transport around...I moved from Boston to Philly a week ago and Philly's public transport, especially the subways are falling apart. Stations are in the worst conditions possible!

When I compare it to other metros I've been on it's far, far worse. Other metros are all heavy rail which gets one around decently fast. While an extremely large part of Boston's system is extremely antiquated light rail and streetcars that have degraded over decades and look ancient. The Green Line easily takes an hour to go from BU to Lechmwre. And that's less than a few miles! Few improvements to the system have been done in decades and what we're stuck with is a relic from a century ago. And prospects for the future look no better.

Only thing that's happened recently is some station renovations that end up degrading extremely fast (Kenmore Square station isn't very nice despite being "renovated") and the Silver Line, which is a ******* bus. No service improvements of any kind in decades, in fact lines has been cut over the years.

Well, i must say you are right - when one goes to another countries and sees how fast the public transportation system are developing around the world, us-cities with their old trains and buses plus horrible - almost falling apart stations, it must look like third world, but among the cities only in the States, Boston doesnt seem THAT bad

And i agree, the green line is really ****ed up.

Green lines, remember are the oldest subway tunnels in the United States. But yes a lot of stations do need to be remodeled.

Other than that Red Orange and Blue line stations are along the more cleaner and better looking stations in the United States.

You guys think the Orange line is okay? The trains look and feel straight out of the 70's. And if its stations compare well with those in other U.S. cities...man.

Out of the T lines, the Red Line is the best.
