    Crazy Transit Pitches

    Last year I saw someone flash a Zone Monthly CharlieCard to the driver of a RIPTA R-Line at Providence Station and be allowed to board. After failing to find any information on their website, I emailed RIPTA customer service to inquire about their policy. This led to a frankly Kafka-esque series...

    Reasonable Transit Pitches

    Idea: add a new infill Green Line (C and D) stop at the Lansdowne Commuter Rail Station. Lansdowne (formerly Yawkey) Station is smack-dab between Kenmore and Fenway (D)/St. Mary's St. (C) stations. Many LMA-area employees take the Worcester Line to and from work, and while this is a reasonable...

    Providence developments

    Based on that description, it sounds like it'll be replacing the parking lot and small retail buildings near the center of this image, and not the large parking garage. EDIT: Some more information, including a... "rendering"...?

    Providence Construction

    Small building under construction on Hope St., between Waterman and Fones Alley. Google Maps shows it used to be half grassy lot, half parking lot.

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    kmp1284's statement is very reasonable, however, because both South Station and the Pike carry commuters largely from the West & South West. Creating delays in both at once will exacerbate issues for the same commuting population, as opposed to (i.e.) the Allston work being done at the same time...

    Providence Construction

    We have two Providence threads and I'm not quite sure how they differ... but since this is construction-related, I'll post this here. Construction is wrapping up on the new courthouse parking garage. I know parking gets a lot of complaints, but this is a proactive move by the City as they're...

    Prudential Tower Observatory Closure & Renovation | 800 Boylston St | Back Bay

    Is there any chance at all of that making a return? I know the owners don't want to and have gutted the space, but back in 2014 Marty Walsh said "This is the first time it's been brought to my attention, and I'll look into it." I'd also love for there to be fewer restrictions on visiting the...

    MBTA Commuter Rail (Operations, Keolis, & Short Term)

    These were installed around 8pm last night and running as of this morning. Thoughts? The resolution looked fine and I guess it's an upgrade from the previous boards, but it seems like these are basically designed to be flexible enough to show ads when there isn't a boarding train. This means...

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    In the Construction Sequence video, at around 0:55, it labels the "Tower Super Columns / Transfer Truss" attached to the tower foundations.

    Fantasy T maps

    While people are critical of another southern fork of Red, I appreciate your filling the existing rapid transit service gap in the area between the Orange and Red lines, and the Fairmount ROW would seem to make a lot of sense to utilize. Is there a particular reason why (i.e.) an EMU Fairmount...

    Providence developments

    According to GoLocalProv, the Providence Arcade (oldest indoor mall in America, current home to a handful of retail/dining tenants on the first floor and micro-loft rentals on the upper levels) is going completely condo, including the retail locations. Photos of the current lofts and mall at...

    South Station Tower | South Station | Downtown

    On the east side of Atlantic, between the intersections with Essex and East, is currently a structure that is a combined ramp access to the rail platforms, bench, and emergency exit - I assume for the highway, but the Silver Line bus loop tunnel is also below this area: It looks like this is...

    Boston Properties Office Tower | 888 Boylston Street | Back Bay

    Taken yesterday - there's still no "reinstall" but I realized that nobody had posted an image yet. This building's crown was already an eyesore IMO, and now it's so much worse (even worse than Millennium's unfinished roof).

    MBTA Commuter Rail (Operations, Keolis, & Short Term)

    I used to spend quite a lot of time on the Providence line trying to get the wifi to work. I realized I spent half the trip trying to get a connection, and when it worked, it was barely enough to load a webpage. I now use a phone hotspot. There's a weird dropout just north of Sharon, but the...

    Providence Construction

    Took some updated photos of the now-completed Department of History buildings: The PAC pit and rear of the history building(s?): In addition, work has started on a new wellness center and residence hall (formerly a parking lot, before that a half-dozen homes): Model and layout: And...

    Educate everyone on a good website...

    Sorry to bump such an old post, but does anyone know the best way to use something like this now? It's exactly what I need for small personal project, and I can find a bunch of articles from 2014/15 talking about how cool it is, but the website now links to https://www.remix.com/ which requires...

    XenForo Update

    @SkyriseCities This is fantastic. The same query that was giving me 2 threads from the last month now finds 2 pages of posts, with the oldest from 2006! Thank you!

    XenForo Update

    I noticed as well that the search indexer seems to only be running on new (post-XF) content. Having searchable messages from the legacy site would be great - any chance this can be manually triggered? May take a little while to run but would be great to do.
