Help fight for #TransitNotTraffic for Allston I-90 project

Allston_I-90_Project.png

We need your help to ensure that West Station is a central component - not an after-thought - for the Allston I-90 Interchange Improvement Project. Better public transit is needed now, not in 22 years.

Here are three things you can do to support West Station and better transportation access for the region: 

  • Participate in the People's Pike's Rally for #TransitNotTraffic tomorrow at 8am in Allston. Don't miss it! Click here for more details. 

  • Help us mobilize the community. We're working with our community and advocacy partners to go door-to-door in Allston, Brookline, and Cambridgeport to let residents know what's at stake. Ready to help? Contact Andrew at andrew@livablestreets.info to learn more. 

  • Join us in opposing MassDOT's proposal for delaying West Station until 2040 by submitting an official letter by February 9th. Get writing! Click here to learn more.

Check out our new Longwood Area Report

The report analyzes our multimodal survey results from our 2017 engagement in the area, providing important takeaways and three recommendations for future transportation planning in the Longwood Area.

We hope you will help us amplify the stories and data included in our report to call for swift response!
