Many T riders favor late-night service

The MBTA wanted to know what its riders thought about starting late-night service and whether they would wait longer and shell out more cash for a postmidnight lift. They figured that maybe 500 would answer an online survey. Instead, nearly 26,000 did, ­almost all in favor of extended subway and bus hours.

Desire, however, does not always translate into results, especially for the perennially cash-starved transit agency. But the survey’s creators hope the flood of responses will provide a road map for night-owl service if legislators choose to pay for it.
