Prioritizing Equitable Growth Through Fare Policy
November 19, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
MassINC recently published a report on fare equity that confirmed what most of us already know: the lowest-wealth Commonwealth residents pay more of their incomes than wealthier folks to get around the state. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the MBTA’s commuter rail network, a public investment many moderate- and low-income Gateway City taxpayers cannot afford.
Join MassINC and featured panelists at the State House to discuss the meaning of fare equity, its significance for transformative transit-oriented development, and potential strategies to address one of the most pressing issues affecting Gateway City residents.
