Boston: Yesterday had first full T service since Feb 1


MBTA track walkers

The T is considering refunding some of the cost of monthly passes.

The Governor has created an advisory panel to "diagnose" MBTA woes  --- as if it's a mystery. Some of the cars on two of the city's main lines date from the Nixon administration, and have never had a major overhaul. They're old designs that short out in deep snow.

Speaking of which: More snow is predicted for tonight.
