I can't believe it's already been two years since Boston to a T was founded.
Boston to a T was started in a dorm room at Suffolk University two years ago yesterday. We began as a blog that showcased to college students what it was like to live in the heart of Boston. Over the past two years however, we have transformed into a platform dedicated to informing the public about the inner workings of Boston's public transportation system.
First, we would truly like to thank you for reading and following Boston to a T. If you read us on a daily basis, follow us on Twitter, or just accidentally stumbled upon the page we thank you for supporting us over the past two years.
For me, creating this blog has not only helped me strive to become a better journalist, but it has also instilled in me a love for urban development and planning, hospitality, and of course transportation.
Over the past two years we have posted over 120 different articles. They have ranged from feature stories, to field trips, and even some history posts. Social media has also been a large part of Boston to a T's success. Through our twitter, Facebook page, and Youtube accounts, we have been able to give our followers a different perspective on things happening around the city.
We have also been able to meet and speak with the MBTA CFO Jonathan Davis, MassDOT Secretary Richard Davey, MBCR General Manager Hugh Kiley and many other notable members of the Boston community.
Boston to a T was founded on the platform of informing the public. We made it our mission to inform the people of Boston, and its outlying suburbs, about the happenings around the city and information about the MBTA.
As we move forward, we will continue to look for even more ways to help bring information to Boston residents and commuters alike. We are committed to using this blog and other social media platforms to put pressure on the MBTA and other Boston organizations to be more transparent.
Happy Commuting, Happy Reading, and of course THANK YOU for supporting Boston to a T!
