It’s probably shaved off a good 15 or 20 minutes,” Seweryn said. “Before, you’d just creep along and it would take forever, so it’s definitely a big improvement.”Hailed by both the city and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority as a simple but significant transit improvement that can be replicated across the region, the Roslindale bus lane has been a boon to thousands of daily bus riders in southwest Boston who now cruise past stalled auto traffic each … [Read more...] about Boston’s new bus-only lanes are an improvement.

0 Have your say There is an enduring appeal of Tuscany and Umbria for people from the UK, as Adam Jacot de Boinod discovered. DH Lawrence was quite taken by Tuscany. “Tuscany is especially flowery, being wetter than Sicily and more homely than the Roman hills,” he wrote in 1926. Certainly the region has enjoyed an enduring appeal for the British traveller, with Umbria joining it thanks to a new generation of holidaymakers. First in 1363 there was a mercenary interest with the legendary Sir John Hawkwood.
