The Wynn Resorts casino in Everett might be getting access to a T station after all. That is, if officials can find a way to pay for it. It won’t be right on-site, but rather across the Mystic River from the casino at the Assembly Row Orange Line station. And now, a proposed footbridge over the river that would put casino patrons within a 10-minute walk between the two is gaining momentum — although there is still far from a consensus on how it would be financed.
Bus passengers in Roslindale might get a quicker ride Tuesday morning, as the city tiptoes into testing a bus-only lane on Washington Street. The city will close off the inbound parking lane between Roslindale Square and the Forest Hills T station during the Tuesday rush, allowing buses clear passage past traffic. The test will be repeated again the following Tuesday. The city chose Tuesdays because parking is already banned until 7 a.m. for street cleaning.
If the future looks as some urban planners and business interests predict, city dwellers increasingly will abandon their cars and instead use a network of shared driverless vehicles to pick them up, drop them off, and head out to get the next passengers. It’s a big “if,” but companies from different corners of the transportation sector — including ride-hail services, rental firms, and even traditional auto manufacturers — are betting on it.
What will the commuter rail look like in 15, 20 years? Possibly more frequent trips throughout the day in either direction within the urban core, or more express service daylong to other regional cities. #MBTA study on potential new biz model will wrap within 2 years.
Pollack earlier said Harvard was only committed to $10m -- roughly 1/3 of the original price. I had heard otherwise, that Harvard would do 1/3 at whatever the cost, and officials now clarify that this is the case. Only a verbal commitment, however. https://t.co/4IHkWjy2Mi
Pollack is quite clear about another cause of West Station delay: The state's priority, beyond a new station, is to make sure they have space to store trains between service. This is one place to do so.
Another board member, Monica Tibbits-Nutt, doubts the highway project + Harvard development can go forward w/o transit. ”There’s a traffic problem now. ... I straight up do not believe the traffic analysis.”
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
