New Encore transportation services made hundreds of trips throughout first day of resort operations
Visitors to Encore Boston Harbor’s grand opening day arrived via public and shared transportation in significant numbers, the Five-Star resort announced this afternoon. Guests from GreaterBoston, Eastern Massachusetts, and out of state took advantage of the MBTA, shuttles, ferries, ride share,and bike share to enjoy the resort while minimizing impacts on the surrounding community.
“This morning demonstrated that guests will leave their cars at home if they have access to modern and convenient choices,” said Robert DeSalvio, president of Encore Boston Harbor. “In the days ahead, we will continue to monitor traffic closely, but today we want to thank our visitors who embraced alternatives. Dozens of federal, state, and local agencies collaborated with us on plans, and the early results show greatpromise for the long term.”
Encore Boston Harbor has introduced new, high-quality services connecting the resort to both offsite parking locations as well as the MBTA system. These services extend throughout the region and run day and night. Resort guests on the first day arrived via public and shared transportation services, including the suite of new services developed by Encore Boston Harbor. Encore Shuttles from Wellington and Malden Center MBTA stations; Premium Harbor Shuttles from Long Wharf and World Trade Center; and Premium Motor Coaches from Rockland, Millbury, and Londonderry made hundreds of trips throughout the day.
It was another historic moment for New England sports fans, and Tom Brady’s arms raised high says it all.
We all watched an extraordinary football contest on Sunday – the aging quarterback GOAT – versus the coming up fast next generation superstar Mahomes.
Let it be remembered that on this night in 2019, we watched one of the most competitive and exciting four-plus quarters of AFC Championship football ever played.
Let it also be remembered that five years from now, such raised arms in the air by a shouting Tom Brady will be a thing of the past – and the glory days of this team something to be savored whenever looking back.
Watching Tom Brady is like watching Babe Ruth. Each time he takes the field, it is another miraculous moment in a past 20 years filled with them.
