Now that summer is here, it is difficult to find parking around Eighth and Vermont with the pool. Is the city doing anything to encourage the use of the T there?
Karin Rexroad, the city public transit administrator, said: "All T routes, except the Route 5, go directly to Ninth and Massachusetts, which is two blocks from the Outdoor Aquatic Center. Routes 3, 4 and 6 (clockwise and counterclockwise) go directly by the Outdoor Aquatic Center every 40 minutes.
"We advertised our transit services in the Parks and Recreation Summer Brochure. We are conducting a radio campaign to promote the use of the T for summer activities, including the pool. In addition, we are offering Free Thursdays from May 31st until July 26th."
