The MBTA in the 2013-4 legislative session (3 Responses)

My top priority in the first leg of the 2013-14 session will be strengthening the MBTA.

The maintenance backlog and service challenges of the MBTA have drawn wide attention. But we need to do much more than stabilize the existing system. We need to increase the capacity of the busiest routes on the system. Much of the system is at capacity and congestion frustrates passengers and suppresses ridership.

There is strong agreement among legislative leaders that we need to address infrastructure issues, including the MBTA, in this session. My advocacy goal will be to assure that we achieve a solution that supports improvement, as opposed to mere survival.
