The federal data, released this week, cast a harsh light on the T and Keolis, the private operator that holds a $2.69 billion contract to manage the commuter rail. After the T’s 338 breakdowns, the New Jersey Transit Corporation had 236 — 30 percent fewer than the T — followed by the MTA’s Long Island rail, which had just 132.Some "good" news:
But both of those systems logged far more traveling miles than the T. The Long Island system recorded 76.2 million miles last year — while New Jersey had 64.7 million. The MBTA logged just 24.1 million miles.
After ringing up 561 cancellations in 2016, Keolis is on pace for 340 this year in a system that runs 3,000 trains per week. As a whole this year, Keolis’ on-time performance has hovered at 89 percent — below its 90 percent target but above the 10-year average.http://www.bostonherald.com/news/local_ ... g_carriers
