Senator Rausch: Help me fight cuts to the MBTA
November 10, 2020 
Dear friends, 
Yesterday, I attended a very concerning meeting hosted by the MBTA, called with very little advanced notice. Governor Baker and the MBTA proposed significant and serious service reductions and other changes, including cutting all weekend and evening commuter rail services, drastic fare increases for The Ride, striking electric bus service, and a full stop on reconstruction at the South Attleboro train station. These proposals are short-sighted and will disproportionately and negatively impact people who are already most hurt by the economic and health impacts of COVID-19. You can read more about the MBTA's proposal here: 
At the state level, I will absolutely fight against these cuts. However, I need your help. Please make your voice heard at any of the following public meetings and submit comment at
