Poll: Massachusetts residents support policies to make transportation cleaner, more equitable, and more affordable.
New MassINC Polling Group Poll finds residents favor both low-income fares and fare-free buses, expanded commuter benefits, EV and e-bike rebates.
With concerns about the economy, inflation and gas prices on the rise, Massachusetts residents support a variety of measures that would make transportation more affordable, cleaner, and more equitable. These include transit fare discounts for low-income riders, making public buses free to ride, expanding commuter tax deductions for public transit and biking, and new state rebates for electric vehicles and electric bicycles.
Those are some of the major findings from a new poll of 1,002 Massachusetts residents fielded June 8-12, 2022. The poll was conducted by The MassINC Polling Group and sponsored by the Barr Foundation.
