The state's commuter rail system has had a rough winter.

With each snow storm, riders of the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad have been plagued by delays, cancellations and an alert system that's notified them of problems too late to be helpful.

Commuter rail officials have been inundated by complaints, so they've pledged to improve their performance. One solution the commuter rail system is considering: run fewer trains when bad weather hits.

To explain how that would help the situation, MBTA General Manager Richard Davey spoke with WBUR's All Things Considered host Sacha Pfeiffer.
