MBTA General Manager Dr. Beverly Scott applauded Jimmy and George and said, “the MBTA continues to set the national standard for customer service and will continue to strive to exceed a customer’s expectations for assistance when riding the T.”
Jimmy and George were pleased with their honor and said providing a high level of customer service is a natural part of their daily duties as T employees.
