Transit Fan Takes the Helm

Last week, Richard A. Davey Jr. was appointed the new general manager of the MBTA, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. The Boston Globe's transportation reporter rides the T with him and talks transit.

Noah Bierman at the Globe asked Davey which transit stop is his favorite:

DAVEY: "The Kendall stop has that great air sculpture, with the wind, when it blows through - right now it's not working but repairs are going to be made, and that will be working again very soon. I think having more public art if possible in the stations - if we could infuse a little more public art, a little more civic pride, I think that would be the way to go. That's a long way of saying I love the Kendall Station."
