MTF Statement on Findings and Recommendations from the Governor’s Special Panel to Review the MBTA

“We are at a pivotal moment for the MBTA and our economy,” said Eileen McAnneny, President of the MTF. “Now that the breadth and severity of the problems confronting the MBTA have been revealed and the price of inaction is evident, we have a real opportunity to move forward with a plan for transforming the MBTA into the modern public transit system that we all want – one that is reliable, fully operational and meets the need of its growing ridership and a vibrant economy. I urge lawmakers to enact Back on Track swiftly so the tough work of reinventing the T can begin.”
