    Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail (South Coast Rail)

    I don't doubt it, but do you think they'd ditch the driver for the Commuter Rail? Awesome you work at EWB, by the way. I'm still hopeful that they end up with meaningful scheduled service beyond the Islands.

    Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail (South Coast Rail)

    The optimist in me (as well as the former South Coast resident who has a soft spot for FR/NB) loves the thought of people coming from Boston and jumping on a SRTA bus to their final destination, moving into a new TOD neighborhood near the commuter rail station, or hopping a shuttle to EWB for a...

    Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail (South Coast Rail)

    Merits of visiting New Bedford aside, anyone who might decide to make that "reverse" trip would almost certainly be heading to the New Bedford station adjacent to the waterfront and downtown rather than Church St. which is in an industrial strip across the street from a fairly nondescript middle...

    Fall River/New Bedford Commuter Rail (South Coast Rail)

    The station site (and the parking lot) is on Church St., so naming it "Church St. Station" would make sense. I'm not sure who it's going to confuse - most passengers will access the station by car in which case they'll plug it into the GPS and be fine (arriving at "Church St. Station" on Church...

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    Weekday mornings are when I’ve seen the most new trains - recently there have been 3 sets running on the Orange Line.

    Piers Park 3 Redevelopment

    They did an awesome job. As an Eastie resident with a drone, I'm envious that they were able to get permission to use it there ("No Drone Zone"/FAA restrictions). But as an Eastie resident who also regularly enjoys Piers Park and the Harborwalk, I'm glad there aren't a bunch of them buzzing...

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    It’s happening more and more for me too. Nabbed one from N. Station to State this afternoon. As we pulled out it announced “next stop is Back Bay.” So good to see somethings haven’t changed.

    Canopy by Hilton (née Haymarket Hotel) | Blackstone St | Parcel 9 | Greenway

    The finished product here is going to make it pretty tough to ignore just how offensive the Dock Square Garage is.

    New Red and Orange Line Cars

    Go to https://newtrains.today/. It tells you how many new trains are running on each line, which direction they're heading and the most recent station. At this moment, there are 3 new OL trains running. Northbound at Mass Ave, Northbound at Community College, and Northbound at Forest Hills...

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    I would also make the case that adding "under construction" stops to that end of the GL since they're already shuttling passengers between N. Station and Lechmere while they work on the viaduct is unhelpful and potentially confusing.

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    I think @Jahvon09 is talking about Assembly which is listed on all Orange Line maps at this point. I don't believe any of the GLX stations are listed on maps yet.

    Hope Point Tower (Fane) | 250 Dyer Street | Providence

    Are we certain that's the price point on these residences?

    Street Use in Paris

    I don't know enough about automobile traffic circulation in Paris to weigh in on that aspect of this, but I love this proposal. At nearly 200 feet wide (inc. sidewalks), there's a ton of room to really get creative in terms of activating the space. Overhauling Place de la Concorde is essential -...

    MBTA Fare System (Charlie, AFC 2.0, Zone, Discounts)

    Yup, and it may win for closest fare gates to the yellow line. On days where you couldn't step right onto the train after going through the gate, it could get uncomfortable waiting for trains on that "platform" with the crowds and the negligible room to walk past anyone standing (or the...

    Green Line Extension to Medford & Union Sq

    Hook Wharf | 400 Atlantic Ave | Downtown

    I don't think it'd be a Courtyard or Garden Inn, but I could easily see it being one of the new(ish) or trendier select service brands - something like AC, Moxy, Aloft, Caption, Cambria, etc. Courtyard and Garden Inn are more traditional "select service" brands, but there are plenty that are...

    Logan Airport Flights and Airlines Discussion

    I wish B6 offered more international partnerships because I'd be in the same boat. I'll admit, I've flown AA several times during the pandemic (most recently, last weekend between BOS-MIA actually) and they haven't been too bad. Flights not full, mask adherence pretty good, and handing out...

    Hurley Building Redevelopment | 19 Staniford St | West End

    The language is a little vague - “adaptive reuse approach that respects the significance of the site while allowing for much-needed improvements.” Between the Lindeman, the Brooke, and the section of the plaza that's not part of the development plan, there's not much open space to build on. The...

    State Street HQ | One Congress | Bulfinch Crossing | West End

    Looks as if it's behind schedule according to the video. There's a timeline at the top and it shows the garage starting to come down starting in October. It also shows glass going up starting in October/November. Maybe we'll see it start to come down in late winter/early spring?
