    (NECN) - Results of an audit of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority released Thursday show a startling discrepancy between the automated fare collection system and the actual money collected, among other issues.

    State auditor Suzanne Bump found a $100 million gap between the system's records and the actual money collected.

    The MBTA claims the issues identified reflect software integration issues in the system, and not a loss of revenue.
