The Alliance for Business Leadership is pleased to join A Better City, Boston Society of Architects, MAPC, MASCO, Transportation for Massachusetts, and the Urban Land Institute in signing a white paper entitled The Route to Growth: Capacity Investments Critical for Region’s Future.
The report discusses the implications the recent MBTA crisis has had on not only the City of Boston, but the entire Commonwealth – and the importance of the MBTA to our state’s economy. The MBTA’s assessment area today comprises 175 communities and almost 4.7 million people – close to 70% of the Massachusetts population1 – proving that people from every corner of the Commonwealth rely on the system. The report analyzes the MBTA’s current predicament and offers resolutions for a bright future.
