To the other person that replied to you though. The MBTA system most likely didn't belong to the MIT students at all since I very much doubt the majority of them were even from the Boston area.
Either way, the MBTA system is stupidly easy to circumvent and with the amount of fiber they have running throughout the T they really should've built a more reliable system. The buses and commuter rail could've been covered too with either a radio or satellite based network (which is currently in place on most MBCR coaches).
