21st Century Transportation
It’s time we had 21st century transportation in Massachusetts
From high speed rail to mass transit, it’s time for us to get on the right track. Bay Staters all want a safe, clean transportation system that lets us all get where we need to go – but our current system just isn’t working. As a country, our reliance on cars and planes to get from point A to point B means our transportation system consumes more oil than the whole economy of every other country in the world except for China, and we import most of that from foreign countries. Our tailpipe emissions account for a third of the nation’s global warming emissions, pollute the air we breathe and make people sick.
We're at a critical moment for public transportation in Massachussetts. Boston and much of the surrounding area is facing fare hikes and services cuts: we'll be paying more for less. At the same time our public transportation needs extend across the state, from the Berkshires to the South Coast.
This spring, we'll be mobalizing students and community members againts the proposed fare hikes and service cuts, while also keeping up the drum-beat accross the state that all of Massachussets needs quality public transportation options.
