As we mourn the loss of MBTA Bus Operator Sanyi Harris, we ask that people continue to keep her family, friends, and colleagues in their thoughts and prayers. Sanyi was a dedicated mother, employee, friend, and Union sister at the MBTA since 2011.
Bus Operators perform a difficult job and are crucial to the delivery of the MBTA’s core services.
Sanyi’s death is an immense tragedy and her family, friends, and colleagues are owed a thorough investigation into the circumstances to determine the cause of this accident, as well as any potential risks that could have been contributing factors.
The T and the Union will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.
The MBTA offers access to grief counseling 24 hours a day, seven days a week, through the T’s Employee Assistance Program, which can be contacted at 617-222-5381.
