“The Back Bay Logan Express service started Monday and will run every 20 minutes from the airport to Hynes Convention Center and Copley station on the MBTA’s Green Line, Massport announced today. The 42-foot bus will stop at all Logan terminals on the departure level and pick up passengers on the arrival levels…The service will run from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. from Back Bay and 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. from Logan, and cost $5, payable with a debit or credit card, or free for riders with an MBTA pass. Massport estimates ridership at 1,400 passengers a day.”

Boston is no longer comprised of 9 – 5 workers.  Our city has evolved to a 24-hour workforce and our infrastructure and services need to play catchup.  Great news for all those getting off work after midnight: starting in 2014, the MBTA will run late-night weekend train and bus service.

From The Boston Globe:

the T will run all subway trains and the 15 most popular bus routes until 3 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Yes, the T is still cash-strapped, and the state budget remains tight, but Governor Deval Patrick has found about $20 million, along with pledges from corporate sponsors, to launch a one-year pilot program to begin in March or April.

Office Building at 1330 Boylston St.

How do you get to work? Would you take public transportation if it stopped close to your home or office?  Do you select office space based on its proximity to North or South Station?

A Boston Business Journal article reports that the station development is heavily influenced by New Balance’s proposed corporate world headquarters, “the station would be built next to New Balance’s proposed $235 million corporate world headquarters. As mitigation for the 1.4 million-square-foot mixed-use development, the sneaker giant has agreed to cover the cost to design, build and maintain the station. The plan received initial approval from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s Finance Committee on Tuesday. A vote of the full board will take place next week.”
