Just imagine what 58 transportation-oriented private and governmental groups could think of and accomplish together. Don’t imagine. Go to Transportation for Massachusetts (T4MA.org) and see. Start with the last year’s legislative recap here.
Josh Ostroff, interim director, spoke today on the aims and needs. We are two transit geeks, who love everything from trains to bikes (and tolerate cars as needed). Among our fast-talking topics were:
- transportation equity, getting everyone including the poor from where they live to where they work or want to play quickly, safely and affordably
- maintaining roads, bridges and rails
- planning, building and repairing for multi-modal transit
- transit for the “unrich’ who don’t have choices for work, education, and just getting around
Regular readers and listeners know I’m big on transit. I expect more shows with principals of T4MA. Meanwhile, look through the site for what fits your interest. Consider the T4MA half day conference Fast Forward to saturate yourself in the subject.
