Take a drive from Union Square in Somerville (you know, where a proposed branch of the Green line extension is to go) and drive to Sullivan Square. Do it during morning rush hour. And time it. If you say it took you more than ten minutes you are lying. Also count how many busses you see.
Now do it when there is no traffic. Two minutes tops.
That’s what we are talking about here. Who are these people that need this Green line extension so bad? I said people. Not corporations that develop residential housing and get high-end prices from temporary residents called yuppies for being close to the new extension.
This is a boondoggle for a few.
It is a disgrace that $10 million cannot be found to keep the T running late a couple of nights a week. The T should be running all night 7 days a week. Much cheaper than a Green line extension and more beneficial to an exponential number of people.
Too bad poor working people don’t have the political clout of Somerville liberals.
