The MBTA has called upon the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to hire properly registered government contractors to aide the Boston snowfall relief effort. MBTA spokesman Joe Pesauro stated, “This last round really crippled our infrastructure and our vehicle fleet. It created operational challenges and created severe damage which will take time to recover from.” There will be limited shuttle services, bus connections, and many cancellations in commuter rail transportation for the next 30 days in the Boston area. Hundreds of roofs are damaged from the weight of the snow and snow plows have been working tirelessly since Sunday, February 15th, 2015 afternoon.
