After Storm Failures, MBTA To Consider Refunds

BOSTON (AP) — The MBTA says it is weighing options for reimbursing passengers for weather-related breakdowns and delays over the past several weeks.

In a special message to riders on Monday, MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott said the agency will discuss those unspecified options next week with the finance committee of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation's board of directors. A final recommendation will then be made to the board on March 11.

Scott said the agency appreciates the "hardships and inconvenience caused by the significant disruptions in service over the last four weeks."

The T says all subway and trolley lines were operational on Monday for the first time since Feb. 1, but equipment problems are still causing delays and cancellations on commuter rail lines.
