MBTA updates hiring standards for drivers

Posted: Updated:
 BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- The MBTA has instated new standards for people who get behind the wheel of buses and trains.

Under the new criteria, drivers will not be considered for employment if they have an automobile violation or at-fault accident on their record within the past two years. They also can't have a major traffic violation or had their license suspended in the past five years.

Drivers won't be considered if they refused a breathalyzer test in the past 10 years.

The new requirements were spearheaded by MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott. It's the first update to their hiring standards since the 1980s.
