The LWVN Board of Directors is joining with other civic organizations to sign on to Transitisessential.org, which is urging the MBTA to make the following commitments:
- Make no permanent or long-term decisions regarding service, especially potential cuts, before the legislature concludes its current session.
- Advance affordability for all transit riders.
- Ensure critical transformative capital investments, climate justice, and air quality improvements move forward in 2020 and 2021.
- Sustainably fund transit in the short-term and long-term.
Cuts to transit service could not be coming at a worse time, and the damage caused by service reductions could take years to reverse.
We encourage you to contact members of our state delegation using the link above. Many voices are needed for this important effort to save public transportation.
