MBTA GM Daniel Grabauskas will be interviewed this Friday, February 29th (Leap Day) at 1 p.m. on RadioBoston. The segment is called "Is the T on Track?"
You can listen to RadioBoston on WBUR 90.9 FM
Here is the abstract about Friday's RadioBoston show:
The litany of woes is as long, and as old, as the MBTA itself: An $8 billion debt. Aging trains and buses. Maintenance backlogs. Fare increases. And now, the admission from MBTA general manager Daniel Grabauskas that the T has been secretly cutting trips from its published schedules.
The hope, Grabausaks says, was that cutting trips would cut costs.
That hasn’t happened. The MBTA is still saddled with a debt load among the largest in the nation for a public transit system. Riders say service has been declining for years. And this is one of the few issues where everyone on Beacon Hill seems to be in agreement: the T is in trouble.
But what to do about it?
This week, get on board as we search for the answer to that question. And another, one of Boston’s most famous: “Should we walk, or do we have time to take the T?”
