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.

Below, we take a look at transportation-related items in the draft budget and amendments that have been filed by Senators. This blog will be updated as debate progresses. There are 1167 amendments that the Senate will consider this week, before approving a budget, which a Conference Committee will refine before it is voted by both chambers and sent on to the Governor for consideration.read moreOn May 13, our coalition submitted a comment letter to the MassDOT Board and the MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board with our perspective on the draft Capital Investment Plan.
