Capuano: Cities should pitch in for future transportation improvements

“After Green Line extension, Mass. needs a new policy” (Boston Globe opinion)

“When the Commonwealth makes a significant investment that will benefit one or two communities more than the state as a whole, it is fair to ask them to contribute….This approach, however, should not begin and end with the Green Line extension. When the state expands our transportation system by building a new off-ramp, widening a road in a congested community, or increasing parking at a commuter rail station, that effort benefits specific communities, and they should be expected to contribute.” –¬†US Representative Michael Capuano
