Kibo's Virtual Reality Tour

The MBTA, aka the (T)

Kibo says:

The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority, better known as the (T), operates the subways, streetcars, buses, and a commuter boat in the Boston area.

They're really not bad as urban transit systems go, although some of the bus drivers on the #66 route appear to be insane.

Hang onto your damp, dirty seat and see these candid photos to learn why the MBTA puts the (T) in "FUN"!




Ladder leading up to tower at Dudley

What they call an "Intermodal Terminal". You get off the subway, then you climb up the ladder, then you jump out the window onto a bus...

(Dudley Square T station, Dorchester)




MBTA logo with biform letters

The new MBTA logo, updated for the sixties. All aboard for Biform City!

(Train at South Station.)




hand-doodled 'INBOUND' sign

Who says MBTA signage is inadequate? This one was plenty big. They must have used up the whole ballpoint pen.

(South Station.)




UNMARKED BLUE IS SPARE

The wet duck flies at dawn. Vibrating nougat zones crinkle lima beans.

(Andrew station.)




enormous pile of cables

My T-3 Internet connection.

(Apparently they connect up all the track lights BEFORE they unroll the cables and plant them. Newton, behind the Fenway T station.)




PLEASE PARDON OUR APPEARANCE DURING CONSTRUCTION

But don't even try complaining about the big holes in the floor.

(North Station.)




well-wrapped giant hand

Always keep your obscene gestures in a brown paper bag.

(Public art under renovation. Park Street station.)




[TEXT... TOO... LONG...]

That's what they get for broadcasting the Starr report.

(Sign for displaying important information at Park Street.)




[@#$@%#$@%#$@$#%@]

That's Merlin's hardest Magic Square puzzle ever.

(Every one of these signs is broken in a different way. Park Street Under.)
