Boston Women's March crowd overwhelms T, Commuter Rail service

BOSTON — Organizers expected over 100,000 people to show up on the Boston Common for Saturday's Women's March, but the crowds overwhelmed the T in many places.

Even with extra trains departing and reports of trains forgoing fare collection to get things moving, almost every line was running well behind schedule, according to the MBTA Commuter Rail's Twitter account.

Saturday's event is part of a nationwide series of post-inauguration marches and rallies.
