Statement from Shannon Liss-Riordan calling for Congressional Hearings on alleged coverup at the MBTA


BOSTON- “Our public transportation system is beyond its breaking point. The MBTA has experienced two major derailments in the last few weeks putting riders safety at risk. Now, the former top safety official with the MBTA says he was pushed out because he raised safety concerns that the Baker administration simply didn’t want to hear. These concerns include serious safety issues related to the Green Line Extension project and violations of federal law. Enough is enough. Congress should immediately hold hearings to investigate whether the Baker administration engaged in a coverup to keep safety concerns out of the public view, as well as the general management failures and safety practices at the MBTA.”
