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.

Ah yes, I remember well having to schlep strollers onto the Green Line (our pediatrician is on the D line though). That was before they introduced the low-floor cars, so we always had to schlep up the stairs of the older cars. I thought I remembered there being a spot without chairs, where a wheelchair (or stroller) could go, but perhaps they filled that in after they introduced the new cars. Of course, with a single stroller there was usually more flexibility than what you guys experience.

Nowadays, with my kids long out of strollers, I always go for the older cars. I really hate riding sideways. Being sideways on the Red Line isn't so bad, but since the green line makes so many more stops and has much more sudden acceleration, I find it really uncomfortable to be in those sideways seats.
