  • Commuter Rail Conundrum

    Anyone that rides the commuter has a strategy for getting the seat they want.  I’m lucky in that I go end to end Worcester to Boston (and vice-versa) so the selection is usually wide open.  In this regard, I have the pick of the liter. The daily conundrum I face is which car to pick. […]

  • MBTA mTicket Experience- Quick Tip for Commuters!

    After a much ballyhooed debut and trial at North Station routes, the MBTA mTicket app is available to me to get from South Station to Worcester! I downloaded it last night and tried it for the first time this morning and things went great!  Other than the downright abrasive nature of the ticket taker on […]

  • If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times….

    Now I’m starting to sound like my mom.  This was one of her favorite lines when I was growing but she usually had to say 1000 times before I would listen. I don’t want to/like to bitch and moan about the MBTA.  The fact remains that I don’t have a choice getting in and out […]

  • What Will it Cost For CarFreeBrad to Drive?

    Over the past few weeks the positive bike news, moves and articles that I’ve been able to attribute to the existence of CarFreeBrad.com have been flowing like the mighty Charles River. Well it appears the tide has turned.  I saw this article this morning and it just took the wind out my sails because with […]

  • Do you want a Party, a card……….

    As the one year anniversary of my CarFree life approaches, I’ve been thinking about what I should do to commemorate the occasion.  It doesn’t seem right to have a party (although that is my default thought process) but it seems like I should do something. Alcoholics have a ceremony and get a one-year coin, right? […]

  • CarFree Radio- Market in Boston with Mike Hughes

    This segment got going a bit late so it had to wait until today for posting.  We recorded “Bikes&Beers” at Market on Broad St in Boston last night and had a great time talking about a host of things.  Some bike related, some beer related and everything in between.  I have to warn you, this […]

  • Bunny Hopping around Boston with Hubway

    One last Hubway adventure before the bikes are packed up for the winter. I had drinks with an old friend and the Boston Founding Manager of TaskRabbit, Mike Hughes on Tuesday night.  It was a great time as we met up at Biddy Early’s and the night was perfect, 60 degrees and clear skies. He […]

  • The Most Ironic Bike Theft EVER!!!

    Disclaimer:  I take full responsibility for my inaptitude in this entire situation.  In no way is any other party responsible or accountable.  CarFreeBrad bares sole responsibility for his actions! That said, I think it’s clear I’m able to take responsibility for my actions and place no blame on anyone except myself.  It’s irony of the […]

  • Hubway “Occupy Boston” to the tune of 100,000 riders!

    After a phone interview yesterday with Worcester Magazine about the NuRide (www.nuride.com)program and the future/potential for change in the “bike-friendliness” of Worcester, I saw this and have to feel good.  Every step that Boston takes toward 100% bike-friendly status, the closer and easier it is for Worcester.  Not to mention the fact that I’ve been […]
