Fresh Boston Olympics Details; Late-Night T Service Limbo

HUB-WIDE—Fresh details are out re: the region's bid to host the 2024 Summer Games. The budget would be $4.7B and would come from private monies. Suffolk Downs could host an Olympic stadium as could Widett Circle in Southie. (More on possible Olympic venues through here.) And Dot Ave. would temporarily become Olympic Boulevard.

HUB-WIDE—Late-night T service is probably doomed: "The $13 million, year-long pilot program started in March 2014, extending service by 90 minutes on MBTA lines and 15 bus routes on Friday and Saturday nights until at least 2:30 a.m. The operation has drawn 850,000 riders since its inception, according to the MBTA."
