Often get upset because you are waiting at a bus stop at the scheduled time but the bus isn't there? Well that's because we have been lied to by the T. According to the Boston Herald, MBTA officials has been "secretly cutting thousands of bus and train trips from published schedules to lower costs - a practice that has left legions of customers waiting for rides that arrived late or not at all."
This confirms what bus riders have known all along - bus service in our communities is notoriously slow, crowded and unreliable. The T has reportedly been cutting more than 3000 trips a month without any warning or notification. Don't put up with bad service! Contact the MBTA to report your problems.
