MOTU@5 | MOTUnes Extravaganza | Day 1: Top 5 Train MOTUnes

As you know, every Monday the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities showcases a song related to transportation, energy, or sustainability (ie, MOTUnes). In celebration of our 5th Birthday we decided to do a MOTUnes EXTRAVAGANZA!  So we teamed up with WXPN to showcase the Top 5 MOTUnes at 5pm, October 1st & 2nd.  Here are the Top 5 Train MOTUnes that were featured yesterday at 5pm!  Be sure to listen to WXPN tonight to hear today’s Top 5 MOTUnes at 5pm!
