In a weekly series on 1033AMPRadio.com, we examine the past week in life on the MBTA – and the many “lessons” we can learn from it.

After an absurdly eventful week of mixed results for the MBTA, the past seven days were relatively quiet. But that doesn’t mean T riders didn’t get their usual dose of delays, malfunctions, and general annoyances that always come with relying on public transportation.

The MBTA continues to decline in quality and lose money, and is an especially reliable source of frustration for travelers. Here’s some crazy things we learned from it last week:

They have viral marketing down.

The MBTA joined the dark side of the force a long time ago.

Only so many riders can be so lucky as to sit next to homeless guys.

At certain times of the night, the T resembles a party train.

Backpacks and briefcases are entitled to the same seating privileges as humans.

Getting seats on the T is a cutthroat business.

North Station is trying to build character by having a signature smell.
