It's been a year now since Boston and then the rest of the state shut down, keeping people at home to "flatten the curve" of coronavirus infections that were beginning to rise rapidly.

We reflect on the past year, look to the future, and take listener calls with MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak.

This segment aired on March 15, 2021.
