Happy to hear that close-in commuter rail is now covered by student passes. Wasn't the case when I was a student (many years ago, alas).

Lotta backed up issues on the northern end (like Alewife crossover, never-ending floating slabs, etc.).The withdrawn notice about a Red Line shutdown only relates to Alewife station. They need to fully replace a crossover there so they will shut Alewife down for a period and terminate trains at Davis.
