“What is your favorite bus route in Boston and why?”

I think I have to say the 1. It’s one of the best shortcuts on the system, and although it suffers from overcrowding and it’s hard to find at Harvard, I still love it. People may note that the 31 got a 10 while the 1 only got a 9, but that’s simply because the 31 fits the unwritten criteria more than the 1 does. Although the 31 is a great bus, the 1 just feels more useful to me. However, maybe it’s because I don’t live in the Mattapan area. It’s hard to say, but I love the 1, anyway.
