Overview of Task Force on Regional Transit Authority Performance and Funding – Public Meeting #1 (WRTA)

This is the first in a series of public meetings for the Task Force on Regional Transit Authority Performance and Funding. Each meeting will present the findings and recommendations of the Task Force, which has been working since October of last year to:

  • evaluate how regional transit authorities can best provide and improve transit services that meet identified community needs
  • conduct regular service planning, recognizing the diverse service populations and makeup of different geographic regions, that maximizes ridership using available resources
  • ensure that fares, local contributions and other own-source revenues cover an appropriate share of service costs

The public is invited to attend any or all of these public meetings and to offer comments on the draft report. Written comments can also be submitted by email to Elizabeth.McCarthy@dot.state.ma.us until 5:00PM on Friday, March 29th, 2019.
