  • MAYOR MATTERS: Keep Boston moving

    CommonWealth Magazine - 10/31/2013

    The safe and efficient movement of goods and people is critical to our economy. Boston’s population and number of jobs are growing, and transportation investment has a crucial role to play in creating enough capacity for all who want to both live and work in Boston. According to a2012 Northeastern University research report, the MBTA will need to serve an additional 100,000 to 367,000 additional daily riders within the next 10 years, yet the current system can barely support our existing ridership levels. Many of our MBTA lines and stations, including the Green Line, Red Line, and South Station, are operating at or above capacity. Mayor Menino’s successor must provide leadership in City Hall and at the State House, and present a bold vision to maintain and expand our transportation network.
