Forum to focus on improving MBTA service, equipment woes
May. 04, 2015
BOSTON (AP) — Suffolk University is hosting a public forum this week to examine ideas for improving service and equipment failures at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority while increasing revenue for the struggling agency.
The forum will be held Tuesday morning at Suffolk's C. Walsh Theatre. It will examine possible solutions in light of major problems the MBTA experienced this winter and a critical report on T management issued by a task force assembled by Gov. Charlie Baker.
Panelists will include: Stephanie Pollack, Massachusetts Transportation Secretary; Eileen McAnneny, president of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation; and Greg Sullivan, director of the Pioneer Institute.
The free event is the latest in the Building Boston 2030 series of public forums presented by the Suffolk University Center for Real Estate in collaboration with the Greater Boston Real Estate Board.
