The MBTA wrestles with transparency

This week, the oft-embattled MBTA has secured a handful of wins: the Union Square branch of the Green Line Extension re-opened two days early, slow zones on the entire extension were lifted and plans for a temporary commuter rail platform in Lynn accelerated.

But the agency continues its struggle with its own opaqueness, evidenced by a transparency-oriented podcast episode featuring General Manager Phillip Eng that the MBTA posted, then abruptly removed from the Internet earlier this month.

Jarred Johnson, executive director of the nonprofit TransitMatters, Boston Globe columnist Joan Vennochi and Stacy Thompson, executive director of advocacy group Livable Streets join Radio Boston to talk all things T.
