Altering my schedule a bit, I took the P512 this morning. Maybe that was a mistake. It was PACKED with Celtics revelers. Maybe it wasn't a mistake - who knows, my regular P508 may have been packed too.
The conductors gave up collecting passes around Framingham. I'm perturbed by this for a few reasons.
- The MBTA needs the revenue.
- It is unfair that some people had to pay for their train ride in and others didn't.
- The T and the city have been promoting the use of the whole system as an alternative to driving in - why didn't they staff up for this? Could they not staff up? I mean - if you aren't going to collect the much needed fares, don't collect it for the entire ride in.
We got to South Station at 9:06 a.m., a few minutes ahead of schedule. It looks like it will be a fairly nice day for a parade - I hope the forecasted rain stays away until the parade is over.
Thank you Celtics for bringing home another championship to Boston!
