Mass. Lawmakers Take MBTA Ride Challenge

A number of state lawmakers from across Massachusetts are taking the MBTA to work as part of a challenge.

At least 43 members of the House and Senate have committed to the challenge of using the MBTA to get to the State House.

The challenge was put forth by two Boston men - one a self-described disgruntled commuter.

Their goal is to bring attention to the experience of riding on the MBTA and what the system needs to become more reliable.

The MBTA was plagued with weeks of delays and cancellations after a series of heavy snow events in the state.

The delays have caused nightmares for commuters, who reported waiting hours for trains and buses in the cold to make it to work.
