The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance has joined with the Pioneer Institute and other groups in calling for the MBTA to be placed into temporary receivership and its board to be eliminated in order to fix the massive financial and operational problems that currently plague the organization.

As Paul Craney, our executive director, put it, "It has now become clear that the MBTA's practices and priorities have long been badly misguided, all while derailing the public’s trust in the agency, and nothing short of drastic measures seems likely to change them. Receivership and eliminating the MBTA’s board should be part of the conversation, not just increasing the funding for the embattled agency."

Receivership was one of many proposed solutions offered by the Pioneer Institute. As noted in the group's report, other crucial steps include a halt to expansion while maintenance backlogs are prioritized, reducing non-essential expenses such as conference travel, and limiting expansions in the number of employees and their salaries. On that last point, media reports have indicated that the MBTA has consistently increased the size of its workforce in recent years, and that the number of employees earning over $100,000 each year has soared.

Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance
