bostonmagazine.com — 'Finally,' said everyone ever. MassDOT Secretary Richard Davey is a man of his word. Back in 2010, he said as the MBTA looked to enhance its technological capabilities, despite its deteriorating infrastructure, riders who frequent the Green Line trolleys and subway cars would one day be able to track their rides in real-time, without having to wait idly at T stations, wondering when their train would appear.

Google Barge Brought to Quincy Before It Disappeared Forever

bostonmagazine.com — A tugboat captain said Google's vessel was a 'failure,' and was always empty.
