Today on the T I saw something that fascinated me – a transtrap. It’s a hook with a strap that a rider can toss over one of the bars and hang onto. “No way,” I thought. “No way that’ll keep him stable!”

But it did. Even on the green line, with its bumps, twists, and lurching starts and stops, that man only swayed a little. No more than anyone else would. I took note for you all, knowing that you’d want to try such a gadget. Unfortunately their site is failing to load and gizmodo was talking about it in 2005. Something tells me this one is a thing of the past. Oh well.
