This is the Radio Boston rundown for Dec. 22. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Starting on Jan. 15, adults will have to show proof of one shot to enter restaurants, entertainment venues, and fitness centers in the city of Boston. On Feb. 15, that requirement goes up to two shots. The same requirements will apply to children starting in March. That's a lot for restaurants to implement at the door. We hear from Greg Ryan, senior reporter with the Boston Business Journal, and take listener calls with Nancy Caswell, president of Massachusetts Restaurants United, and owner of Brine in Newburyport and Oak and Rowan, and Emma Hollander, partner at the Starlite Management Company, which owns restaurants in Somerville, Cambridge, Newburyport and Plum Island.
  • The MBTA had old equipment and too little money before the pandemic. Now, ridership numbers are down, and there are too few employees. How to keep the T moving? We take listener calls with MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak. And we get analysis from WBUR reporter Darryl C. Murphy.

This program aired on December 22, 2021.
