We hope the buses are able to get us where we need to go today, but yesterday that was frequently a problem. (Metro’s Ice and Snow Transit Service Status page will tell you if your bus is still cancelled or rerouted.) If you can’t get off the Hill to do your Christmas shopping, don’t forget our recent post about holiday shopping right here on Beacon Hill. It might give you some ideas for ways to get your holiday shopping done here in our neighborhood — no gasoline, tire chains, or fender-benders necessary. (The comments on that post include some other suggested places to shop on the Hill, so check those out too.)

Does anyone know what the delays are like for the 36 today?
I suggest looking at the realtime bus tracker applet at http://busview.org, keeping an eye out for a northbound 36 and heading out to the bus stop when it looks like it’s 5-10 blocks away.
Kept my waiting down to 3-4 minutes this morning. The ride, which usually takes 40 minutes, took about an hour.
