EBC Supports the Coalition for a World Class Public Transit System

Posted May 21, 2015 by

Our region depends on a functional mass transit system to continue to grow and create opportunity.

On May 20, 2015 the Environmental Business Council (EBC) joined with other pro-growth organizations across the commonwealth along with Greater Boston Mayors and a diverse group of community leaders to launch the Coalition for a World Class Public Transit System.

Governor Baker has proposed a series of common sense MBTA reforms that will help the system recover from the historic winter of 2015 and promote a modern, efficient, and accountable system for the future.

If these proposals are to succeed – your voice must be heard. We are asking you today to visit our new website www.FixOurT.com, sign our online petition, and lend your support to this important cause.

Last winter’s failures led to closed schools, workers missing shifts, patients missing critical medical appointments, and millions of dollars drained from our economy. It’s time to Fix Our T, and to do it, we need your help.

Sincerely,

Daniel K. Moon
President and Executive Director
Environmental Business Council of New England
