RAILROADED, TO A T. “Baker has not taken the commuter rail to work since becoming governor, [and] Baker recently told the Boston Globe that the variety in his schedule makes it difficult to commute by T. … If he wins election, Gonzalez said, he would occasionally ride the T to see how it performs.” (State House News Service)
