MBTA Experiences More Problems During Commute

BOSTON (CBS) — The MBTA and Commuter Rail have been plagued with problems this week, and Wednesday night seems to be no different.

There were several trains delayed during the evening commute, and once again it appears winter weather is the cause in some instances.

Scott Farmelant, a spokesperson for commuter rail operator MBCR, told WBZ that service was impacted by cold weather, two locomotives that were taken out for service repairs, a switch failure and crossing gate failures.

He went on to say the cold weather caused air hose failures, which impacts braking.

The MBTA’s website has a full list of alerts.
