MBTA late night service starts tonight

Yes, I’ve gone on the record as saying that late night service on the MBTA is a horrible idea until the system is better funded.  Yes, I still contend that it’s a terrible idea, especially considering the MBTA just announced another potential round of fare hikes.

But I also fully support the idea of extended hours. albeit with a well-funded system that fixed many of the current problems that plague the MBTA.  Therefore, I fully intend on supporting the expanded hours when I’m out and about in the city late at night.

Bostonians, the MBTA asked what you wanted, and you told them extended hours.  For once, the MBTA listened and is giving you a one-year trial period.  If ridership is lackluster, the program will get the axe next March.  In the words of the great sociologist RuPaul, “Don’t fuck it up!”
