A new advertising program by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) addresses passengers’ complaints. The leading complaints by riders are large backpacks that bang around and take up space on crowded trains, and ‘manspreading’ – men who sit with their legs wide apart and take up two (or more) seats. The video explains:
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) announced special schedules and information for the July 4th holiday. In particular:
- Bicycles will not be allowed on any subway lines for the entire day on July 4th,
- Bicycles will be prohibited on inbound Commuter Rail trains from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm as well as on outbound trains after 4:00 pm,
- Beginning at 2:00 pm, subway service on all lines will operate at rush-hour levels to accommodate increased holiday ridership, and
- Fares will not be collected on the Subway, Bus, Commuter Rail, Ferry, and the RIDE, after 9:30 pm.
