Governor Charlie Baker has signed Executive Order No. 579, establishing the Commission on the Future of Transportation in the Commonwealth to advise the Baker-Polito Administration on future transportation needs and challenges. The Commission will explore anticipated changes in technology, climate, land use, and the economy to determine likely impacts on transportation between 2020 and 2040. This work will be conducted through a robust grounding in facts and trends, development of plausible future scenarios, and formulation of recommendations to the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and other key decision makers. The Commission will meet monthly and will provide a report on the analysis of members and make recommendations by December 1, 2018.
