Forget that old-fashioned ode to some guy named Charlie wandering the bowels of the MBTA. The T’s got a brand-new theme song, and it’s called “The Safety Bounce.”
The song and accompanying music video, a hip-hop-inspired rumination on all things transit safety, will debut Wednesday on YouTube and at four of the T’s major stations.
T officials aim to use the three-minute ditty to teach children headed back to school the perfunctory elements of safe, courteous train travel — mind the gap, don’t blab on a cellphone, hold onto the escalator rails — but they are also hoping that the song’s catchy refrain (“Just bounce, when you ride it out!”) will be a hit among adults, too.
