I work downtown and used to take the train all the time but it has become so disgusting that I now carpool when I can.
Also, if I have to work later than 6 p.m., it is scary taking the train. I have seen teenagers smoking marijuana at the stations, and fear for my life when I am walking to my car. I also had my vehicle broken into at the Franklin station. I was told by transit officials to try parking at a different station — one that was safer. If they want people to park and ride, then the transit system should provide some security.
