Transportation for Massachusetts (T4MA) is a diverse coalition of more than 50 organizations working together to create safe, convenient, climate-friendly and affordable transportation for everyone. We advocate for transportation funds to be spent fairly and wisely, for transportation decisions that are transparent and accountable, and to ensure that our transportation system has sufficient resources to meet tomorrow’s needs all throughout the commonwealth.

This is a challenge that we must address comprehensively, with good information and sound values, informed by expertise and by the everyday perspectives of the public.
