MBTA releases commuter rail bid details

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority released thousands of pages of documents on Wednesday that reveal the size and scope of two competing bids to run the state’s commuter rail system — the biggest operating contract in state history.

The release of the proposals had been promised by the T since last week, when MBTA General Manager Beverly A. Scott recommended that Keolis Commuter Services be awarded the contract. But the document dump was hastened Wednesday after the incumbent operator, the Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Co., filed for an injunction in Suffolk Superior Court asking the T to publicly release Keolis’s proposal and evaluation documents.
