Left Out in the Cold
By Saferide

I was waiting in a line of about 20 people for Saferide at 6:30 Sunday evening. Saferide buses only seat 14, and they have a no-standing policy. I won’t argue with that policy, as it promotes safety. When there is that much demand, though, MIT should commission a second shuttle to run the route. What about the people at the first few stops who can’t board to return to Boston because the shuttle is too full? What about when all 20 people have commitments to make in 10 minutes? I urge everyone who has suffered a similar experience to write the MIT Parking and Transportation department to get some more vans in service at peak hours.
