Fiscal Cliff Deal Restores Transit Benefit

Legislation averting ‘fiscal-cliff’ (HR 8) included a provision that will once again re-establish parity between the parking and transit benefits at $240/month. The provision is effective immediately and is set to expire at the end of 2013.

A great deal of thanks needs to be expressed to all of those who supported this legislation on and off the hill, specifically the champions of the legislation, Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) and Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY).

MassDOT Kicks Off Statewide Transportation Conversation

Meetings to be held to Help Determine Future of Transportation in MA

(click here for complete schedule)

The Massachusetts Department of Transportation will kick off a 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 15 meetings. 

Representatives from each division of MassDOT – RMV, Highway, Aeronautics and MBTA/Rail and Transit – will be available to answer questions and provide information.

The first meeting will be held in Springfield on Thursday, September 27th. For more information go to: http://www.mass.gov/massdot/yourvisionourfuture

 Those who are unable to attend the meetings but wish to submit comments can do so at yourvisionourfuture@dot.state.ma.us
