  • New report projects 80,000 more cars on Boston roads by 2030

    WGBH - 06/08/2016

    A significant increase in Boston’s population over the next fifteen years will put an inexorable burden on Boston’s suffocated roadways and inadequate public transport systems, necessitating a new transportation plan founded on “credibility and trust,” Rick Dimino, chief executive of A Better City, told Boston Public Radio on Wednesday.

    Dimino and Barry Bluestone, co-author of the State of the Built Environment Report, professor at Northeastern University, and founding director of the Kitty and Michael Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy, explained that “as many as 80,000 more vehicles” may clog up our roadways in 15 years, according to a recent calculation by Northeastern University.
