Transportation Equity

Right now, District 5 is not adequately served by our transportation options, and I will work immediately to increase those options in a thoughtful way. We need to make the Fairmount Line a rapid transit line that accepts Charlie Cards. I will dig in with my partners in government to work towards a long term fix to the MBTA, which we know has been neglected for far too long. I will work with state leaders to increase the frequency of the rides while also focusing on reliability. I will engage with all stakeholders to make sure our bus routes reflect the real needs of our residents, and with neighborhood groups who are active and focused on bike lanes, traffic calming, recreational paths and alternative transportation development.
