MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATIC PARTY STATEMENT ON TODAY’S MBTA FISCAL AND MANAGEMENT CONTROL BOARD MEETING

BOSTON – With the MBTA’s Fiscal and Management Control Board (FMCB) meeting today at noon, Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford called on the Baker administration to immediately withdraw their proposal to cut weekend commuter rail service and services offered through The Ride:

“The Baker Administration should retract their outrageous proposals to eliminate weekend commuter rail service and cut service for disabled passengers. These offensive cuts should never have been on the table. The Baker Administration should stop holding the threat of cuts over the thousands of riders who depend on weekend commuter rail and the Ride.”
