About

I started transitboston.com in 2008 with the goal of creating a valuable resource for in-depth analysis of transit, geographically focused on Boston, Massachusetts.  Over time, I got away from advocacy and current-event-type articles, which others do very well (see here and here and here).  In the meager spare time that I devote to the blog now, I have been developing documentary-type materials that hopefully will inform, if not really persuade.  I added a time mapping project in May, 2013.  In the future, I hope to update that project (comments are welcome) and add a page documenting the actual performance of transit services (i.e., when did that five o’clock train actually arrive each of the last six Fridays).

If you like what you see, leave me a comment or send me an email at doug (at) transitboston.com, and check back regularly for new material.  I welcome project ideas and collaborations of all types, online or offline, happy to serve as a sounding board for your own ideas.  Thanks for visiting!
