The MBTA emphasis on public outreach and safety is in good hands with the MBTA Operations Training Department and MBTA Transit Police as Subway Instructor Tony Whitley, left, presented on Thursday, August 21 to 180 students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at Boston’s UP Academy middle school.
MBTA Deputy Transit Police Chief, Patrol Division Night Commander Kenneth Green works with the MBTA Operations Training Department on Community Outreach to schedule and present important information for youth and first-time riders. The collaboration provides basic information about the MBTA and teaches students and other riders about personal safety while riding the T.
