Take shuttle bus, sign at Park says

Rajeeve Martyn was at Park when this sign post went up, he reports that "MBTA workers were surprised, too."

The MBTA reports delays on the Riverside Line due to "a switch problem" at Riverside. But that's not all. Phil R reports what he saw at Reservoir:

Another snowy day, another one of those new, state of the art IB #MBTA #GreenLine trains was just taken out of service at Reservoir. Complete with the sign showing "Call Police" when we passed it on my train.

The Green Line came to a grinding halt on Comm. Ave. at the BU Bridge tonight when somebody in a Tesla wound up enmeshed with the tracks, KMV reports. No word if the driver claimed to be just following GPS directions or maybe taking care of his dog in the back seat while on autopilot, but whatever the reason, a big ol' tow truck had to be called in to get the expensive doorstop off the tracks.
