Here's the Radio Boston rundown for May 20. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • MBTA head Steve Poftak discusses the T's plans for gradually reopening. Plus, we ask a former Mass. Secretary of Transportation and the director of Transportation for Massachusetts what the T has gotten right in this crisis, and what issues or policy changes it should be considering as Massachusetts begins to reopen.
  • WBUR's Fred Thys runs through Boston College's plans to reopen, and how other local colleges and universities envision the fall semester.

This program aired on May 20, 2020.
