ProJo and report today that the MBTA is considering eliminating night and weekend commuter rail service to help close their bazillion dollar budget deficit. I really don’t have much else to say besides, “ugh.”

One question though, has the Turnpike Authority considered closing the Pike at night and on weekends to save money? I didn’t think so.
