As part of Governor Patrick's ongoing transportation reform efforts, the Turnpike Authority board yesterday voted to enter into an agreement with the MBTA for armored car and money processing services.
The MBTA will provide money processing and armored courier services to the Authority. The agreement allows the MBTA to perform these services at a significant cost savings
for the Authority.
This reform is expected to save $3 million over five years and is part of the Pike's ongoing efforts to achieve additional cost savings and efficiencies. Reform efforts to date have saved $31 million.
This is yet another example of transportation agencies working together as part of the Mobility Compact, identifying and moving to implement creative, money-saving reforms.
