Per Anonymous’ comment on Matt Baynie’s commitment to TCT last year, the weekend service on Route 12 should be more robust this summer. Some redundancy has been introduced with the 12 (all-stops) and 12B (express) running at about the same time on most trips. This "buddy system" worked on the morning of July 3 when a 12B trip was converted to operate as a 12 after the bus for the all-stops trip experienced a mechanical failure. Similarly, on the morning of July 9, the 11:17 express trip was “cancelled because of an equipment problem”; the 11:22 all-stops bus was available as backup.
A tip of the hat to Mr. Baynie and Bus Ops for their proactive planning!
