The Path to Better Public Transit
PUBLIC TRANSIT IS A PUBLIC GOOD
Public transit is a lifeline for many communities and an economic driver for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It provides transit riders with opportunities to succeed by connecting them with education and employment. It provides good jobs and career pathways that enable transit workers to provide for their families. Public transit also protects against the degradation of our environment through reduced carbon emissions1 and gasoline consumption.2 Investing in public transit is essential to building and strengthening the economic and environmental well-being of our communities today and for future generations.
