The Boston Globe's Shirley Leung reports that the MBTA plans to offer limited post-closing-time service in 2014:
Starting next spring, 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.
Could this be the camel's nose under the tent for a city notorious for its resistance of 24-hour living? More important, does it offer an opportunity for more drunk dining?
