Each year, the MBTA returns regional economic benefits worth more than five times what we, as a region and commonwealth, spend to operate it. We are benefiting now from investments in public transit begun a century ago, but the levels of growth expected in this region over the next quarter-century cannot be accommodated without bolstering that investment in a strategic and deliberate way.
This becomes clear in a new report prepared by A Better City with support from the Barr Foundation and the Boston Foundation, which assesses the current state and ideal future of a transit-centered economy, including challenges and strategies for sustainable growth. Join them for a presentation of these findings, along with a lively conversation about transit's elemental role in the life of a world-class region by a panel of diverse experts.
