Busted buzzer

On and off Arlington resident writes:
I was getting on the 62 bus out of Alewife to ... wherever ... and writen all over the inside was "Buzzer doesn't work, call out stop!" All over the place! Alot of the busses buzzes' dont work but atleast one driver did something about it.


To point out that sometimes the signs say "No Buzzer" yet the buzzer actually works.

I think they might be cutting the buzzer because people are abusing it. From making unnecessary requests at the end of the line (the bus HAS to stop there anyway) to kids playing with the tape, to kids pressing the tape and making it look like other riders pressed it. So far, the only garage that's known to do this is Charlestown/Bennett.
