MBTA expenditure change

Back here are some charts showing MBTA operating revenue and expenditures for the last few years. You'll notice that between 2001 and 2002, the commuter rail and subway switched places as the service type that the T spent the greatest proportion of and most money on. Note: these are *operating* expenses, so the c-rail Greenbush line isn't the reason. Any idea what might be?

[ETA: For those of you who like maps, if you look in the directory that file's in, you'll see a series of pdfs that are maps showing geocoded census information about the Boston area. Known upcoming edits on those maps include reversing the colors so the areas of interest are darker (except on the race one, where that's already the case) and lightening the lines between towns (thanks, spike!).]
