  • Transit users suffer a cut in US tax benefit today

    The Boston Globe - 01/01/2014

    Stephanie Pollack, associate director at Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, said lawmakers’ lack of urgency to make the commuter tax urgent may be attributed to a perception that it affects only wealthier commuters.

    “It makes Congress just think, well, it doesn’t affect that many people, or it affects people on commuter rail or ferry boats, and they’re not the poorest of the poor, so it’s OK,” Pollack said.
