[click image to enlarge]

To ease overcrowding on the Red Line train from Quincy to Boston, a couple cars have been reconfigured without seats.

I ride the Ashmont line and I still haven't seen a single one of these! I wonder if they're only running on the Braintree trains?

Wow, no seats!!

isn't this inconvenient for, say, the elderly?

back home,it would be impractical in the philippines to have train cars without seats,the first thing that commuters want is a seat.

Interesting way to solve the problem. I may be open to that more than having a bus just pass me up as it often does in Pittsburgh.

That seems horrible since you have to stand regardless of if it is "over crowed or not. Yikes.

Wow... I guess I've been away from home for too long.. I had no idea.... wish they would just run more trains. I'm living in Korea now, and the train comes ever 1-5 minutes. Makes standing around for 15 mins on a sunday for the red line seem like some backwards civilization...
