Michael A. Turcotte, MBTA Director of Systemwide Maintenance & Improvements

I am pleased to report that MBTA track maintenance forces have reduced speed restrictions on the MBTA’s Subway Lines to record low levels as of last month.  

The MBTA measures the track condition impacts on the customer in minutes added to the scheduled trip time because of speed restrictions.  

The T’s speed restriction impacts on the entire Subway system for November were eight minutes and 42 seconds , down from a high of 135 minutes in the Summer of 2003.

With a customer-driven focus on reducing subway travel times, MBTA Maintenance of Way crews have been working around the clock to make the track repairs necessary to lift the restrictions that force train operator to lower their speeds.
