By the time the T is up and running, it'll be late March/early April. By then, the temps will be at least 50+ F, so lots of snow will be melting.
Volunteers for snow removal on the MBTA tracks are now making $30/40 min work effort.
What amazes me, is how the City of Boston can claim to be a "world class city" and how it still continues to turn up it's nose at Chicago and New York.
Many of the trains in Illinois run above ground and have done so for for a very long time. What's so special about the ground in Boston, that the MBTA has all this trouble with snow/ice??
