Indeed. In the eyes of Massachusetts General Law, a trackless trolley is a streetcar and so is not subject to the documentations or inspections required of motor vehicles. Therefor, given that the report above regards the trackless trolley portion of the route your objection is sustained! :P

The transit way is also a "Subway" so as long as a bus delay occurs in the transitway or in the Harvard tunnel it's on topic.

Big mess on the Green Line right now.

Green Line service suspended between Blandford St and Government Center due to a wire problem. Please expect delays as buses are dispatched.


Green Line C branch and Green Line D branch service suspended between Kenmore and Government Center due to a wire problem.


Green Line E branch service suspended between Northeastern and Government Center due to a wire problem

A deuce of Type-7s (D) became disabled westbound midway between Government Center and Park Street at 8:45 this morning. I was on an (E) behind it; we sat for 25 minutes while "...officials are heading to investigate; we apologize for the inconvenience." No T-Alert.

Once the disabled got moving, they parked it on the wall track, so all service was routed to the fence track further slowing service.

Not a great start to service:

Shuttle buses replacing Red Line service between North Quincy and JFK/UMass due to a power problem. Customers are encouraged to use Commuter Rail from Braintree and Quincy Center to South Station.


Service resumed at around 6:30, according to the MBTA's Twitter.

WCVB reports that a maintenance vehicle derailed though, damaging the track.

Here's a new one:

Orange Line experiencing delays up to 10 minutes due to a train with a vandalized car at Mass Ave. The car has been taken out of service.
