The Governor's comprehensive transportation plan puts reform first.  In fact, the Patrick Administration in two years has already implemented dozens of reforms that have saved tens of millions of dollars.  Reform savings at the Turnpike, MBTA, and MassHighway total more than $83 million. 

• Turnpike: $31 million saved by reducing administrative staff and toll collector positions, overtime, and outside consultant contracts along with other cuts.

• MBTA: $46.9 million saved through a hiring freeze for non-direct service jobs, overtime reduced by one-third over three years, and more efficient work rules among many reforms.

• MassHighway: $5.7-7.2 million estimated annual savings from the Governor’s police detail-flagger plan approved by the legislature.
