Mayoral rivals offer formulas for transit, parking
The Boston Globe - 09/17/2013
Many of the candidates are expected to speak about transportation issues at a candidate’s forum on the topic, scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Boston Public Library.
Stephanie Pollack, associate director of Northeastern University’s Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy and co-moderator of the forum, said transportation issues have been a prominent part of the mayoral campaign.
“Transportation has moved up on the radar screen a lot, compared to the last few mayoral elections,” Pollack said.
Candidates hope they can use public transportation to appeal to a wide swath of voters, especially younger voters and late-shift workers, who might be more interested in later T service.
