They've already started moving away from using his voice.

Examples:

-The elevator announcement for Park st on the red line is done by someone with a snarky voice
-The countdown timer announcement uses the "Mike" voice from the AT&T text to speech software
-The delay announcements on the subway uses the "Crystal" voice from the AT&T text to speech software.
-North/South/Back Bay station announcements formerly used the "Rich" voice from the AT&T text to speech software, they now use "Crystal"
-The "See Something Say Something" announcement at all stations used to use Frank's voice. It now uses "Crystal" and announces the phone number for the MBTA police.

Eh. He said he'd still be doing voiceover work as-needed. This is just his day job that he's giving up.
