tion, attitude of staff, specifically
within the customer service center, and enhanced data management as examples.
"Transportation is a gold mine
for data and here we have data scientists who are able to do data analysis that helps us identify trends -
be it on equipment or ridership or
on behaviors," said Tabary.
In June, the commonwealth
approved a five-year Capital Improvement Plan for MBTA, which

included $538.6 million in investments to improve the safety and
resiliency of the commuter rail
system and $1 billion for Phase 1 of
the South Coast Rail Project, which
broke ground on July 3. In May, the
FMCB approved a contract option
to overhaul an additional 27 F40
commuter rail locomotives. The
original contract was awarded in
2017 for the overhaul of 10 locomotives to improve equipment reliability and to support Rail Vision,
MBTA's strategic plan to identify
cost-effective strategies to better
support improved mobility and
economic competitiveness of the
commuter rail system.
"We are in the midst of a substantial planning process called
Rail Vision that is designed to look

thing from maximizing the assets
that we have today to reimagining
a new, electric, high-frequency service. There will be a robust process to determine the next steps
and the timing on that initiative
going forward. While we plan for
the future, in the meantime, we are
continuing to push the 'meat and
potatoes' improvements that will
improve daily service - upgrade
our fleet of coaches and locomotives, modernize our stations, and
enhance our track and signal in
the course of this five-year capital
plan. Delivery of the plan will be
a challenge, but we have the support of the general manager and
his team and the coordination
among the agency departments to
deliver. If there are challenges, we
are meeting in multi-disciplinary
teams early in the process to identify and solve the problems," said
DiAdamo.
