Poll: 78% of voters view transportation system in only ‘fair or poor’ condition

New MassINC Polling Group Poll finds 59% of voters support future MBTA shutdowns to expedite improvements

Voters have a long transportation to-do list for the next governor of Massachusetts. Improving roads, bridges, and public transit is the top priority, but voters also support major expansions like bringing rail service to Western Massachusetts and reimagining the Commuter Rail network. To pay for it all, voters continue to support Question 1 to tax income over $1 million, but little else. Many want to see the state do more with the money it already has.

Those are some of the key findings of a new survey of 987 likely Massachusetts voters in the November election conducted by The MassINC Polling Group. The poll was sponsored by The Barr Foundation.
