Brookline Patch Column: Charlie and Children on the MBTA

What's it like trying to get a stroller onto and off of the Green Line trolley in Brookline? Do the other rush hour passengers complain, or do they endure it stoically? How friendly are T drivers when they see newborns?

These questions and many more are answered in Nomi and my current The Brookline Parent column up at Brookline Patch:

Charlie and Children on the MBTA.

DangerBoy hasn't been on the T very often, but we've been on buses a lot, with and without a stroller. I didn't even realize until a driver suggested it last month that we could put the wheelchair securement seats up to get his stroller out of the aisle; we'd just been trying to scrunch out of the way as much as possible. Oops.

I haven't yet had anyone give us grief on a bus, although on occasion we've been the third or fourth stroller and did get some dirty^Wincredulous looks then. Nearly every time we've been on a bus with steps, I've had at least one person jump to help us on and off. It might just be Arlington, but people on the bus seem pretty nice.
