Ticketing Changes - gone away?

As reported earlier this week, the MBTA/MBCR implemented some ticketing changes at South Station by checking that you had ticket before you boarded the train.

I wondered how long that would last?

The queue for the Amtrak departures creates a navigation maze for the commuter rail folks. And heaven forbid they dispatch a commuter trail on the platform adjacent to an Amtrak Acela or Regional being boarded in the slow long line fashion. The few times this did occur, there is no chance for anyone to stop the 500 plus folks marching to their commuter train.

So how did the proverbial management THEY think it was going to work? Smooth and charming?

Fortunately, I guess we won't need to know as it apparently did not last long. I saw it in effect Tuesday but not since.
