We need to #SavePublicTransit
Governor Baker and Lieutenant Governor Polito’s “small minded and short-sighted” transit policy is hurting low-income communities and communities of color.
Without reliable and affordable transportation, those of us who use transit the most — including working families, Black and brown communities and many essential workers — struggle to get where we’re going. We need better service and a reduced low-income fare to get to jobs, school and medical appointments. The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has made public transit even more critical for those in need.
But Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito have overseen slashed MBTA service and vetoed legislation to help low-income people afford transit.
Join the Public Transit Public Good coalition in calling Gov. Baker and Lt. Gov. Polito and urging them to reverse the cuts and support low-income fares.
