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

    With the new development at Woburn Landing, Mishawum should be converted to a full time station.

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

    Fortunately there's another station a quarter mile away, so no real loss.

    Revere has a large immigrant and non-citizen population. I wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't fully counted in this years census.

    Logan Airport Flights and Airlines Discussion

    Along those lines, I wouldn't be surprised if JetBlue is planning to cut back LGA shuttle frequency and repurposing that capacity to leisure destinations post covid. Especially with the AA partnership giving JetBlue FF an option.

    Logan Airport Flights and Airlines Discussion

    Airlines are betting that leisure travel will come back faster than business travel.

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    I'd suggest a blue line extension to Lynn on one side and Charles/MGH on the other. That combined with a people mover, or just movable walkways to control costs, would provide pretty good transit access to Logan.

    Connected/Automated vehicles and infrastructure in Boston

    The first fully automated vehicles will function like Ubers, with no personal ownership. Due to the economics of not having to pay a driver, it'll make car ownership obsolete for a large chunk of the population.

    Logan Airport Flights and Airlines Discussion

    A vaccine looks like it's coming very soon. It'll be interesting to see how fast air traffic comes back. It's kinda late in the game to be starting layoffs tbh.

    Regional Rail (RUR) & North-South Rail Link (NSRL)

    Cheaper yes, but the RUR with rapid transit frequencies will help a much larger area. It would also provide better connections to Salem/Beverly. The whole section from downtown Beverly on in could support rapid transit. Salem, Beverly and Lynn have all been pretty supportive building dense...

    The Hub on Causeway (née TD Garden Towers) | 80 Causeway Street | West End

    Frankly, this came out much better than I thought it would from the renders.

    Marine Wharf (Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites) | 660 Summer St | Seaport

    Can I nominate this to the "worst developments of 2020" list?

    Regional Rail (RUR) & North-South Rail Link (NSRL)

    Merging the Downeaster and Northeast Regional might increase Maine/NH ridership a little bit, but it's a fairly small benefit compared to how NSRL would improve commuter rail.

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

    Interesting why an observation deck needs to be 3 floors, are they turning it into a museum?

    Crazy Transit Pitches

    Diesel commuter rail trains are loud. Getting rid of that noise would probably please the NIMBYS. The biggest downside is the fact that more trees would need to be cut.

    COVID-19 in Boston

    You have to wonder how this is going to affect office demand. I'm surprised so many office projects are still going forward.

    JetBlue did bid, just wasn't willing to overpay like Alaska was.

    ^I wonder if this means that JetBlue is thinking of scaling back the LGA/DCA shuttle like service.
