28 (Mattapan-Ruggles via Nubian)

Alright, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “ghetto” and “Boston” in the same sentence? Roxbury? Alright, good, we’re on the same page. Now, I don’t have any pictures for this review since this one was just before I started doing T reviews. But, I’ll try my best anyways.


The good: It’s direct and bisects a low-income neighborhood! It’s also FREE (paid by the city of Boston), though I don’t know how long it’s lasting. It also serves a lot of people, with the high frequency to boot. Plus, it’s frequent! Most one has to wait is 20 minutes, and that’s usually on weekends when service is reduced.

The bad: The fact it serves so many people can also mean, if you get claustrophobic, this route might be problematic for you. The frequent stops also means that if you’re in a rush, it might not be the best option.

Nearby points of interest: Mattapan and Ruggles, of course! There’s also the areas in between in Roxbury, if you’re into local stuff.

Overall, it’s definitely one of those routes. One that is better off in its current state, despite its flaws. And, it’s free for the time being so there’s that as well.

Rating: 8.5/10
