Senator Warren’s Statement on MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak’s Resignation

Washington, D.C. — United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) released the following statement regarding the resignation of Steve Poftak, General Manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA): 

“Steve Poftak's resignation, a few weeks after I led a Senate hearing in Boston on the monumental failures of leadership at the T, is long overdue. We now have a critical opportunity to make much-needed changes and ensure our public transit system is safe, reliable, and first-rate. With visionary leadership, sufficient resources, and effective oversight, we can get the T back on track for its riders and workers – and the people of Massachusetts deserve nothing less. ”
