The MBTA is bi-lingual

I was on the red line T the other day.  It's the first time I noticed that they have bilingual announcements.

As we were approaching Park Street Station, a recorded annoucement in a deep male voice came over the PA system:

"Park Street. Change here for the Green Line".

Then, the train conductor made an announcement:

"Paahk Steet.  Change he-ah fah da green line-h".

I guess, if you are a native of Boston, you might not understand English, unless it has a Boston accent!
