Can We Trust the T?

Tuesday, April 16, 2024

06:00 PM - 08:00 PM

GBH Studios

1 Guest St, Boston, MA, USA

Riders want to know: Can we trust the T? Trains and buses run late or never show. A crumbling infrastructure has led to equipment failures that threaten riders' safety. Many riders have simply given up and joined the snarl of car traffic. After one year on the job, Phillip Eng is working on multiple fronts to get the trust restored. But is he on track? 

GBH News Transportation reporter Bob Seay welcomes MBTA General Manager Phillip Eng, State Secretary of Transportation Monica Tibbits-Nutt, and Jarred Johnson of Transit Matters, on stage to ask what it will take to bring reliable transit service back—and if the state can afford the needed changes. 

Bring your transit questions and join the discussion during our Q&A session and after the talk for a community gathering with local transit-focused organizations.

Event registration is required. Seating is general admission.
