Seemingly Speedy P508

My commute on the P508 was good. It seemed speedy. The train wasn't very crowded at all. We arrived to South Station at 8:20 a.m.

The big news this morning was the suspension of two T trolley crew members who were involved in separate accidents. You can read all about it in this article from today's The Boston Herald.

On the subject of accidents, WCVB-TV Channel 5 aired a report last night on how MBTA policy puts riders at risk. They even have the video running with the article.

The Salem News published a story yesterday about a petition circulating in Salem to ask the state to build a new parking garage at the MBTA station.

Today's Boston Globe ran this article about some concerns Massport's CEO Tom Kinton has over the Port Authority running the airport tunnels. If that doesn't cause your head to explode from information, this will. DiMasi wants a gas tax, the Governor wants a Pike toll increase and Murray wants a strategic plan. Three different leaders, three different ideas.

Finally, for MetroWest commuters seeking options to the commuter rail, My Southborough reports that the Southborough to Boston bus has not been cancelled. If you didn't know about this option and you are a Southborough-area commuter, you might want to go and check it out.

I would love to take this bus, but I'm not sure where I can park. TI called Cavalier and they were very vague about it, saying something like "Look around, you'll find parking." Their website says more or less the same thing. If I knew definitely where I could safely park, I'd take this bus in a heartbeat! Does anyone have more information, either for the Soutborough or Northborough run?
