MassDOT is continuing its series of statewide public meetings, engaging with residents, community leaders and business owners to discuss the future of transportation in the Commonwealth.
Legislation passed in August requires the Department to host at least six public meetings in advance of developing a long-term financing plan for the state's transportation system next year. To ensure that all regions of the Commonwealth are represented, MassDOT will hold more than 15 meetings.
"Every person in the Commonwealth has a stake in our transportation system," said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey. "Whether someone drives, walks, takes public transit or rides their bike, there is rarely a day that goes by that they don't interact with the system. These statewide discussions are intended to allow the users of our system to share their ideas, thoughts and proposals for improving and paying for our transportation network for many years to come."
Representatives from each division of MassDOT – RMV, Highway, Aeronautics and MBTA/Rail and Transit – will be available to answer questions and provide information.
Those who are unable to attend the meetings but wish to submit comments can do so at email@example.com
