Service Change Ongoing
MBTA service levels have been increased in the interest of the health and safety of our riders and employees. All riders must use face coverings when on the MBTA.



The MBTA is overseen by 2 governing bodies—the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) Board and the Fiscal and Management Control Board (FMCB).

Fiscal and Management Control Board

Governor Charlie Baker established the Fiscal and Management Control Board (FMCB) in 2015 to rein in costs and ensure that the MBTA operates effectively.

The board is made up of 5 members appointed by the Governor and will work to drive organizational change for 3 – 5 years at the T. Among its many goals, the FMCB aims to improve:

  • Governance
  • Finances
  • Agency structure
  • Operations

The MassDOT Board

Stephanie Pollack serves as the chair of the MassDOT Board, which has 11 members. The MassDOT Board is responsible for all transportation issues in Massachusetts, including highways, mass transit, vehicle licensing, aeronautics, and more. Three of the MassDOT Board members are also on the FMCB.

Get Involved

The FMCB meets once a week to discuss the status of the MBTA. Once a month, the FMCB and the MassDOT Board have a joint meeting. Each meeting starts with a section for public comments on any topic on that day’s agenda.

All FMCB meetings are accessible to participants with disabilities. To request an accommodation, please contact Owen Kane at or 857-368-8767.
