MBTA officials are looking into whether a worker was sleeping on the job after an anonymous T rider tweeted a photo to transit police that shows a male employee allegedly catching a few Z’s.
MBTA Spokesman Joe Pesaturo confirmed that T officials are investigating the incident, which he said happened at Park Street station around midnight Sunday.
The image was posted as a response to a tweet by transit police asking riders to notify them if they see anyone on the T who needs shelter.
In May, a transit officer admitted to sleeping at his desk after a rider snapped a photo at a Mattapan stop and tweeted it to the public. That employee faced disciplinary action.
MBTA Police Superintendent-in-Chief Joseph O'Connor confirmed that the employee involved in this incident is not a transit officer, and that the tweet was forwarded by police to MBTA operations.
