The 73 is back, baby!

I finally got to ride on the 73 since its long-awaited return to trackless trolleys last Saturday! Turns out I got it right in a sweet spot, too - earlier in the afternoon no trolleys were running because of work, while later in the evening there was a wire problem that prevented trolley operation! But yes, the 73 is finally back, and man, it was so great to see trackless trolleys running up and down the route. I ended up walking back to Aberdeen Ave to snap lots of pictures of the route. Here are the best ones...

There hadn't been a 73 in a while, so this one got really crowded.
Mine came right after, and it was empty, so...ha!
My bus at Waverley.
Oh boy, check out the triple bunch!
The bus in front had already passed, so here's a double.
A bus dropping someone off.
That same bus coming 'round the bend.
Goin' up the hill.
Oh dear, the sign appears to be broken on the front vehicle...

My favorite part of the 73! Gosh, I love this view.
Trying to do a fancy motion shot...
A bus disappearing into the night.
And finally, a vehicle back at Harvard!


  1. Hi there, I hadn't checked out your site in a while so I was quite happy to see you are still posting. Could you comment on the apparent exit fare system used on the 70–73 routes departing from Harvard Square busway? The most recent couple times I took it, people kind of just all piled on at Harvard and then used their Charlie card when exiting the bus at their stop.

    1. The 71 and 73 have an exit fare system, yeah. I think it's because the trolleys board on the left in the tunnel, and it would be a pain for everyone to have to walk up to the front to pay on entrance.

  2. If everyone pays when they get off, the right backdoor is kinda useless
