Several special events, including the Pride Parade and the Bunker Hill Day Parade, will be taking place in the City of Boston this weekend.  The Boston Transportation Department is advising drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians to take extra care to obey the rules of the road and to be considerate of others traveling on local streets.  Those coming into the City to attend these events are encouraged to leave their private vehicles at home and take the MBTA.  Information on MBTA service can be found at www.mbta.com.  For a faster return trip, the MBTA advises riders to purchase a round-trip rather than a one-way ticket.
