Aug. 20 (UPI) -- A Boston woman is attempting to break a Guinness World Record by visiting every train station in the city in under 7 1/2 hours.

Maya Jonas-Silver, 29, a lifelong rider of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority trains, said she and her fiance are moving to New York in two weeks, and before she leaves Boston, she wants pay tribute to the MBTA by breaking the record.


"I really have spent what's felt like countless hours on the train in my life," Jonas-Silver told the Boston Globe before beginning her journey. "I'm always excited about what the T is up to."

Jonas-Silver set out Friday morning at 5:21 from the Riverside Green Line station, and is attempting to visit every station in the city in less time than Alex Cox and Dominic DiLuzio, who set the record in 2019 by visiting every station in 7 hours, 29 minutes, 46 seconds.

Jonas-Silver admitted the record would not be easy to break.

"There's this construction right here, which definitely adds some time, and then there's also construction at the end of the E Line in Jamaica Plain," she told WHDH-TV.


The record attempt is scheduled to end at the Alewife station on the Red Line.
