The MBTA just keeps getting worse
This morning out of Framingham...the railroad just keeps getting worse...
The 8:47 express that's supposed to arrive in South Station sometime around 8:30 (let's not hold the train to an exact time) pulled in as a local around 9:05. The "express" was behind us; God only knows when those poor souls got to work. In Framingham we waited for four transit police officers and a dog to make a sweep of the cars. What that was all about we had no idea, but we did keep hearing over the loudspeaker how we were going to have to go 25 mph for three miles. No explanation for that either.
Oh, and no conductor showed up in our car to take tickets, so while the MBTA lost money, at least some people didn't have to pay for the shoddy service.
