About the event

The Transportation & Climate Initiative is a multi-state compact to reduce carbon emissions and invest in better, cleaner, more equitable transportation. What does this mean for rural communities and transportation in Massachusetts? What are the benefits, and who decides how the program is run. This important event was presented for anyone who cares about clean transportation in rural communities.
