Be on the lookout for double-decker buses in Southie on Thursday.  Yankee Line will be testing the use of double decker buses (similar to the one in the photo tested in Quincy on Wednesday) to help move the droves of commuters from Southie trying to make it downtown.  Could these new buses be potentially used for the #7 and #9 routes?  We shall see.

Testing begins at 10am.  So if you’re waiting at the bus stop and see one pull up, get on board and let us know what you think!

    Interesting…..then maybe the T can have a # 10 old dirty bus that will show up more than once an hour if at all

    Sort of funny it took them all these years to come up with this.

    Any desperate play to not actually deal with the problem of traffic and transportation in South Boston. It doesn’t matter how big the buses are if they are stuck in traffic. It’s just another bright & shiny toy meant to distract…

    BTW What does Yankee Line have to do with the MBTA? Another privatization scheme?
