Gov. Maura T. Healey, Lieutenant Gov. Kimberley Driscoll, and Transportation Secretary Gina Fiandaca announced that, after a comprehensive search, they will be appointing Phillip Eng as the next GM of Boston’s Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA).
Eng is an engineer with nearly 40 years of experience in transportation, including as president of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s (MTA) Long Island Rail Road and interim president of New York City Transit.
“It’s time for a new way of doing business at the MBTA. As an engineer, a transportation professional for 40 years, and a commuter myself, I’m laser focused on finding innovative solutions to complex problems and approaching them with a sense of urgency that always puts the customer first,” said Eng. “I’m also committed to supporting the hardworking employees who keep the MBTA running and ramping up hiring to ensure that we have the workforce in place to deliver the reliable service that riders deserve.”
