Feds issue scathing report on MBTA's safety issues

Download Audio

Following an investigation started this past April, the Federal Transit Administration handed down a report on the safety of the MBTA. It found numerous concerns, from maintenance trains that have been out of service for months, to a staggeringly high percentage of train operators and inspectors overworked and out of certification to do their jobs.

We speak with WBUR reporter Símon Rios, who's been covering the issue, and a transit advocate about what's next for the T in light of the scathing findings.

This segment aired on June 16, 2022.
