ACE Member John Cater at a TRU training

What happens when an NPR reporter rides the #66 with TRU Organizer Lee Matsueda and ACE Member John Cater? Find out on the segment "Riding the Bus," aired last month on WBUR.

Host Meghna Chakrabarti interviews riders along the route, talks to the MBTA Director of Operations and Service Development and compares an MBTA bus to a loud, crowded and smelly box.

Said Lee, "I think the experience that an every day rider has on the bus hasn't changed. There are more people on the bus, but the overall quality of transit, the crowding, the drivers, these things have continued."

Read the full story and listen to the audio version, complete with ambient bus noises. For more information on TRU and T service issues, please contact Lee.
