With the transit struggles of last year’s winter still fresh in the memories of Bostonians, the MBTA is assuring commuters that everything will be all right this time.
"We've done a ton of work to prepare for the winter, and I anticipate that that work will be put to good use starting tonight," MBTA General Manager Frank DePaola assured the public.
"We accomplished everything plus a little more that we wanted to get done this year, so we are very comfortable going into this winter where we are.”

NBC Boston reports that “the MBTA spent the past few months winterizing its system, hoping the preparation will prevent a repeat of last year. The prep includes replacement of 10 miles of the third rail on the Red Line and putting third rail heaters on the Orange Line. The T will also be using a new de-icer on the third rail.”
All of this comes on the heels of delays on the Braintree branch on Tuesday morning.
