Statement from MDP Chair Gus Bickford on Today’s Red Line Derailment

In response to the second MBTA train derailment in four days, Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair, Gus Bickford, released the following statement:

“Today, the MBTA experienced its second train derailment in four days. These derailments don’t just cause delays and frustration, they put lives at risk. Meanwhile, just yesterday, Charlie Baker doubled-down on his position that we don’t need additional revenue to fix our broken public transportation system or our crumbling roads and bridges. If the governor thinks the system can run just fine as it is, then it’s fair to ask if the problem lies with his ability to manage it.”
