Dear MBTA,

Thank you for not following schedules. For your total disregard for time. For offering minimal service with increasing fares.

This morning I waited 20 minutes for a bus that never showed and prevented me from doing my 14 mile run. I needed to take the bus to Watertown Sq. so I could meet a group of runners. The timing was perfect! I knew the scheduling of the bus was too good to be true. I would have enough time to walk to our meeting place with a few minutes to spare.

I watched the digital numbers change on my watch. After each transformation of the minutes, I became more unconvinced I’d be able to make it on time. I stood well rested at the bus stop with my wind breaker and water bottle in hand. I was so disappointed.

Thanks MBTA.
