The MBTA expands westward

The MBTA's fresh new logo
Feeling a little let down by Spring? Dreary of being drenched by April showers? Perhaps you're tired of high housing prices for small apartments, traffic congestion wherever you go, and fighting for a parking space when you get there? Are you just itching for a little sun and some desert fun? Or is West Roxbury just not "West" enough for you? Whatever the reason, the MBTA has just expanded its service to a whole new area.

It's a veritable NIMBY paradise:

  • No buildings taller than 2 stories, so you won't feel "menaced" while walking near them.
  • Plenty of setback from the road.
  • Shadows are basically non-existent.
  • Lots of "greenspace" in the form of palm trees, cacti and scrub bushes.
  • Ample free parking. Always.
  • Approximately zero congestion. All intersections operate at level of service "A" or "B".
  • You may not ever see your neighbors; much less hear them.
  • Beautiful mountain scenery.
So what are you waiting for? Just hop on the Route 1 bus.
