The Red Line is much improved — compared to the nightmare it used to be. But system-wide, the T is indeed in deep doo-doo. It's the 5th largest mass transit system in the U.S., and for the past 4 or 5 years has been running the biggest deficit of any system. They've already had fare increases and service cutbacks (with more to come), and the MA legislature is still wrestling with a meaningful funding bill.
But even though my engagement with them also taken a budget-related hit, they're still one of my most favaoritest clients.
Then I've been knee-deep in it for nearly six years. I'm hoping to move home within a year. Problem is the harder I try to re-establish a client base there, the more business I pick up here. And there's the real estate market, too. It's improving in my area, but I really want to be able to sell my condo before I move. I'd rather not have to carry utilities for two homes, nor the condo fee.
