  • Poor public transit hard on Latinos, report finds

    The Boston Globe - 07/10/2013

    Though the report focused on Latino communities, the findings probably apply to other parts of the state, said Stephanie Pollack, associate director of The Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy at Northeastern University.

    “The families we talked to are paying a very heavy toll in money, in time, in stress, and in not being able to get to the things they need to improve their lives,” Pollack said Tuesday after a press conference to announce the report. “We can fix that by spending money on better bus service.”

    The report recommends additional funding for regional transit authorities to expand service hours, increase bus frequency, and add new routes in neighborhoods across the state.
