    1. She would cut the T worker’s salaries to nothing and have volunteers operate the trains. This should work wonders, at least I wonder. But based on the poll results so far, it won’t matter if it’s free. No one intends to ride. So if we keep Marty, the tracks can be converted to bike lanes and we would be free of trains.
