Love (for public transit) is in the air

The MBTA and RTA legislative caucuses came together for their first joint hearing on Valentine’s Day to discuss options to raise badly needed revenue for both the MBTA and the regional transit agencies that serve our Gateway Cities. In the past, the needs of transit agencies outside of Greater Boston have often been seen as secondary to the needs of the T, but increasingly, as captured in this analysis from State House News, the dialogue recognizes that investments in public transit are equally critical to the economic vitality of regions like Fall River, New Bedford, Springfield, and Worcester.
