Mon, 24 Oct 2016 12:48:41 +0000

Aside from the general suckitude on the Fairmount Line, Keolis this morning is blaming delays on the dreaded slippery rail, from all those slippery leaves that fell in the weekend monsoon.

Fairmount Line continues to be lame

Mon, 24 Oct 2016 12:39:59 +0000

A couple days ago, the Globe reported how Keolis treats the Faimount Line like its spare-parts bin - pulling equipment off the line when other lines have problems. This morning, Samantha Sergeant reports:
