Quality public transportation is a critical issue for students, young professionals, and all residents in Greater Boston, so the Greater Boston Young Democrats and YDM wish to encourage members to have a voice in improving the system. Please see the notice from MassDOT below and be sure to share your thoughts!

How would you improve MBTA service in Roxbury, Dorchester, or Mattapan?

The primary outcome of the Roxbury/Dorchester/Mattapan Transit Needs Study will be the identification of short, medium and long-term improvements strategies that have broad community support. In addition to the dozens of recommendations that have already emerged from other planning processes in the study area, MassDOT wants to evaluate your ideas as well. So whether it’s a minor modification to a bus schedule, or the introduction of a new rail line, please share your idea with us today at www.mass.gov/massdot/rdm/feedback.aspx!

If you’d like to share your idea in person, you can also visit one of MassDOT’s RDM Study outreach tables.  The team will be out at Dudley Station on Thursday, June 30 from 3pm to 6pm, and at Forest Hills Station (lower busway) on Thursday, July 7 from 3pm to 6pm. We hope to see you there!

Be sure to visit our website over the summer to view all the suggestions MassDOT receives.  As always, if you have any questions about the RDM Study, please do not hesitate to contact Scott Hamwey, MassDOT Project Manager, at 617.973.7210 or by email at scott.hamwey@state.ma.us.
