Worcester Mayor Timothy Murray blasted Daniel A. Grabauskas, the general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, for not improving service on the commuter rail, especially on the Framingham/Worcester line, the Telegram and Gazette of Worcester reports.
Murray, who is also the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, said that when Grabauskas was appointed secretary of transportation, he said a deal was imminent to add two more daily trips on the Worcester line.
Since then, no trips have been added -- and service has gotten worse, Murray said.
Grabauskas said in a statement that on-time performance to and from Worcester improved in September.
"The MBTA will continue to make improvements to all aspects of commuter rail service in the months and years to come," he said.
