Foundation spells out what failure to fix T means

MBTA bus image

As the Orange Line closing begins tonight at 9, the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation has issued a report that begins, “The MBTA is in a full-blown crisis. Failure to fix it has profound impacts on the region’s economy and the companies and people forced to rely on public transit. The MBTA’s problems are not new; nor are studies and panels and commissions to recommend fixes.

“But many of these past efforts have failed to fully recognize how deeply entrenched and multilayered the T’s problems have become. If we continue to ignore the intricacy of the issues driving this crisis, the MBTA will fail to achieve any of the bold visions for the future. Instead, it will continue to lurch from one crisis to another.”
