In Covidland, riding public transit has been an experience. At first it was a hot mess, but the T sensed up and realized they had to start to control crowds. One of the buses I ride is a very busy route (well all of the buses through my town are high ridership regardless), and the crowds in non-covid times are just insane. Lots of pushing N shoving. Its annoying.
But since the T is trying to limit crowding, they’ve been far more flexible with adding buses to avoid crowds. Unfortunately, it causes lines like this:
Currently the town I live in, Chelsea, Massachusetts is the hardest hit city in the town by COVID19. Not only are we the most hit with cases so far (as of 4/22), we’re also a town of service people, so many of my friends and neighbors are out of work. Lots of hard working folks. Sometimes I feel like I’m one of the few on my street that is still employed.
This is picture from my friend Matt Frank who took a photo of the line to get food.

One of the things I plan on doing alot of is posting to my Youtube Channel and cross posting here. While I am stuck at home for the time being, and I have the gear, and I just recently found Open Broadcaster Software (free software), so I plan on posting lots of stuff, going live and what not.
But here’s a inserted video (to test word press ability) to view a video. And since the silver line anniversary was a few days ago, here’s the first bus that leaves South Station of the SL3 that I shot with my GoPro.
