They did give detailed updates on the initial delay in OL vehicle rollout to the FMCB, meetings of which are livestreamed and reported on by local media. I distinctly remember Jeff Gonneville explaining the details of what was wrong. Livestreams are available here: https://www.mbta.com/events. I believe you can watch archival recordings at the "Livestream" website.The orange line cars are a great example of this. At any point they could have done a long interview with any of our TV stations, inviting them in and giving a detailed explanation of what the 9+ months of delays have been - describing what needs to be fixed/tested. Instead we get a generic "software issues".
Then they have a big press conference putting the new train in service. Only to pull it 3 hours later - and only here in archboston do people surmise they are still working out the bugs. Why not, at this press conference, say "it will only be on line 3-4 hours a day as we continue testing and working out small kinks"??
