The MBTA today runs more weekday bus trips while spending much less on employee overtime compared to 2005. 

Today, because the T has hired more bus drivers and mechanics, the actual number of bus trips being run each weekday is 41 MORE than that of a typical weekday in 2005 (from 2,750 to 2,791)

In FY 2005, just before Dan Grabauskas became T General Manager, $36.8 million was spent on overtime. In FY09, overtime spending is projected to be $19 million.  The MBTA has reduced overtime spending while improving service and keeping total employee headcount below the level approved by the MBTA  Board of Directors.  Comparisons below.
