  • Thanks for reporting on transit service disruptions. I note Channel 10 traffic reports noted ripta and Amtrak status though not the MBTA commuter rail. Channel 6 and 12 made no mention of any transit whatsoever in their traffic reports that I heard. The RIPTA e-annoucements did update the MBTA situation.
    Those of us promoting commuter rail are trying to get more routine media attention to that service
