Regional Bus Service is at Risk

  • Massachusetts needs a strong, statewide public transit network. Your help is needed now to save the Regional Transit Authorities that provide essential local bus service throughout the state.

Right now, our Regional Transit Authorities are under threat because of a proposed FY 2019 state budget that level-funds operating assistance to all fifteen RTAs. The legislature should increase this budget from $80.4 million (an amount that is virtually unchanged from the last 4 years) to $88 million, using funds dedicated for transportation. This will stave off cuts and prevent drastically increased fares. We need your help!

What you can do

  • Sign our petition today to ask Governor Baker and the State Legislature to increase state funding for RTAs to $88 million in Fiscal Year 2019.
