Any thoughts on Davey's effect on MBTA and DOT passenger rail and rapid transit durring his time running these agencies?

I think he did a great job and has an impressive handle on what transportation needs this state has. The only thing I don't like is that as his career as Transportation Secretary progressed, he had to back up the governor, sometimes for absurd projects (South Coast Rail). I personally don't get the impression that he's sold on something as crazy as South Coast Rail, but of course he had to back up the governor on it.
