BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh addressed improving the T at a MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board (FMCB) meeting on Monday.

Walsh said he wants service to improve on all lines following a summer of derailments and delays.

According to Walsh, the diminished quality of service on the T is affecting traffic on major roads around the city.

“I think people love the freedom of their car, but they also don’t like sitting in traffic for three hours,” Walsh said. “I think if people felt that they could get to a station, drive their car to a commuter rail stop or drive somewhere and hop on a train and get to work into Boston, I think they would. You'd see less cars on the express way and less cars coming into the city, and also less cars leaving the city."
