According to this Globe article, it's not just "packages" (def. 1 from the AHD: "a wrapped or boxed object; a parcel") but any bags larger than 6" x 12" x 4" that will not be allowed on the Orange Line during the convention. The article also says that "all permitted bags will be searched on these trains."

This is certainly not the information that is in the MBTA's DNC brochure. So, either the Globe writer is interpreting this brochure differently than I am, or he has another source of information.

Okay, I just filled out a comment form on the MBTA's Web site, asking them what exactly "packages" means. Watch this space for their reply.

I love this exerpt (bold text my fault):

riders will be discouraged from taking bags, especially large bags, onto the system the last week of July, including those going to and from the airport with luggage, said Michael Mulhern, general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

"We're going to great lengths to make this as unobtrusive as possible," he said.
