Boston Celtics’ first round draft pick Kelly Olynyk will ride the Green Line from Kenmore to North Station at 2 p.m. today to mark the launch of new “next train" electronic message boards on the 100-year-old line.

 

 

The boards will provide waiting passengers with an estimate as to when trains will arrive.

 

Transportation Secretary Richard Davey will join the 7-foot basketball player on his ride.
