Public transportation in MA is at a watershed moment, both reeling from pandemic ridership drops and facing a carbon constrained future. We talk with an expert about the present and future of the MBTA and transit in the whole region.
The reading list:
- Transportation for MA (T4MA) is a statewide coalition of advocacy groups.
- Commonwealth Mag: should we still call it commuter rail?
- Globe: MBTA re-thinks service cuts
- Commonwealth Mag: MBTA needs to electrify
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
