Late Night MBTA Service to Continue on a Reduced Schedule

On Wednesday afternoon, the MassDOT board approved the continuation of Late-Night T Service, but will operate on a reduced schedule due to budgetary constraints. This means, according to the Boston Globe, that passengers will have to wait for a longer duration of time between rides.

 

The initial trial period for the service allowed for the subway and certain bus lines to operate as late as 2:30 a.m. but the latest approval, for which $10 million is dedicated, curtails that time to just 2 a.m. It's part of "a $2.02 billion budget for the T’s 2016 fiscal year," reports the Globe.

 

Further, starting June 27, the 15, 22, 71, 73, and 77 bus routes will not operate past 12:30 a.m. Ten other bus lines will remain.

Boston Convention & Exhibition Center Gets Major Wireless Upgrade

The Massachusetts Convention Center Authority has begun installation of a $2.6 million wireless infrastructure overhaul at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

The state-of-the-art upgrade will increase the number of existing wireless access points from 113 to at least 580, meaning a 413 percent increase in number of access points throughout the BCEC.

The MCCA, the first organization in the meetings industry to offer completely complimentary and reliable wireless Internet service at its facilities, has upgraded the wireless infrastructure at the BCEC four times since 2004.

D Street Tunes: Here is the full DJ schedule for Lawn on D’S summer series ‘Lester Bangs Presents’

With only about a year of programming under its belt, outdoor space The Lawn On D might be this summer’s hottest music destination in Boston. This past weekend, the Southie-slash-Seaport multi-purpose venue hosted a jam-packed Narragansett party with Bearstronaut, and two upcoming Bowery Boston shows — Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros on June 17 and Passion Pit on July 23 — are already sold out.

 

Saturday nights at Lawn On D are taking a more chill approach, with a series of various personalities in the Boston music scene DJing parties that pay tribute to their favorite artists and musical moments in time.

 

It’s called Lester Bangs Presents, and it kicked off this past weekend with Eli “Paperboy” Reed spinning southern soul, and future events include the Boston Herald’s Jed Gottlieb spinning local favorites, DJ ABD throwing down all things related to Prince, and this writer tapping into his former life as DJ of the Pill for a night of Cool Britannia.
