Coalition for a World Class Transit System Statement on MBTA Legislation

Despite efforts over the past decades, previous reforms have failed and the T continues to deteriorate, threatening our vibrant economic recovery. Bold action is urgently needed. Five months after the T’s complete shutdown, we cannot lose the sense of urgency around fixing something that is severely broken. Our top priority must remain the interests of the working and commuting public. The Coalition urges the legislature to focus on comprehensive reforms that restructure the T’s operations and finances to optimize MBTA operations.
