That Green Line in Boston is ancient and it shows. I think most of the trains on that line don't even have level boarding so it takes everyone a few extra seconds to get on. They also feel pretty cramped to begin with.

Special events like a baseball game will always have this problem to some extent. The Red Line will definitely have this issue when McKalla station is operational. Auditorium Shores could also have this issue during special events. Luckily the Orange and Blue lines should run so frequently that anything at UT or downtown should be a breeze. And like Freerover said, the tunnel will go a long way toward keeping things moving efficiently.
