    More context might have helped too. Right before this line, they are talking about how Will is going to get to his job in Cambridge: "Yeah, I figured now that you got your big job over in Cambridge, you needed some way to get over there and I knew I wasn't gonna drive you every day..."

    "T" being an abbreviation for "Transit". It should noted that referring to the subway system as "the T" is local Boston slang, and most Americans outside of Boston or New England would be unfamiliar with it.
