Action e-lert: Important Transit Petition

For years, we've warned about worst-case scenarios that could force a complete shut-down of the T. One happened yesterday.

Storms expose all of the weaknesses that result from a lack of investment in transit, and their results--schools and business closed, roadways clogged with snow and extra traffic, and people who can't get where they need to go. 

LivableStreets is taking action with the Transportation For Massachusetts Coalition, and now we need our members to step up
. Our elected officials need to hear from residents frustrated with the state's massively underfunded public transit system.

Please add your name to the growing list of MA residents who want reliable and safe public transportation, roads, and sidewalks. 

For workers, students, families, seniors and visitors all across the state, our MBTA and regional transit service must be improved, so that it can be maintained to operate regardless of the weather. Winter conditions have exposed the worst of our strained transit systems, but regular riders know that we face unreliable, underfunded bus and train service every day.



Buying a Charlie Ticket should not be like buying a lottery ticket, and getting around safely and on time should never be a game of chance. With the support of thousands of residents across Massachusetts, we will succeed in making investments to improve and maintain the trains, buses, roads, sidewalks and bikeways that we all rely on for our daily lives. 


Thank you for making your voice heard.
