There have been community meetings to discuss the MBTA in the past few years. We’ve gathered. We’ve voiced our concerns, ideas, and complaints. The MBTA says they’re listening and then……nothing changes. Back in October of 2017, officials from the MBTA said they would be eliminating bus stops, adding additional buses to busy routes during rush hour, and installing new bus shelters. Well, we’re still waiting.
On Wednesday, May 16th at 6:30pm at the Tynan School – 650 East Fourth Street, the MBTA will be hosting an Open House to discuss improvements in making Southie bus service faster, safer, and more accessible. The public is invited to share thoughts and questions with the MBTA and City of Boston staff. Here we go again…..

Here is an idea…OUTLAW UNIONs. These people retire at 50 years old and get a $40,000 pension for life…..explain to me how that makes sense?
They then say they need 8% year over year annualized returns on the fund which is so far beyond a “rosy projection”…it makes me sick. Back in the day, when publicizing labor exploits was difficult, unions were necessary. Today, they are the stranglers of economic growth. If you’re a value-add laborer, you will be compensated adequately. These unions allow slackers to thrive at the expense of the public.
Here’s some light reading:
