MBTA Makes Changes To Allow For More Social Distancing

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has announced new changes being implemented to try and improve social distancing on buses and trains.

MBTA General Manager Steven Poftak said the changes will include service availability and passenger boarding measures.

"We have had to reduce service levels," Poftak said. "This is done in part to protect our workforce, but also to continue to provide a reliable level of service for the customers who really depend on us."

Poftak said the measure will allow the MBTA to "provide the service reliably for a sustained period of time."

Tee riders will also have to board through the rear doors on all MBTA buses and street level stops on the Green line and Mattapan line.
