Green Line

Dreaming small comes with a cost

From the Boston Globe column by Yvonne Abraham:

“…the stripped-down proposals offered so far, while they save dollars now, squander the Green Line’s great potential for public good….So far, the administration has done a great job of lowering expectations on the project, even threatening to cancel it altogether. Happy to jack up fares on riders, they won’t go near higher taxes for others, even though everybody would benefit. So they say we can’t afford what planners had envisioned, and advocates have scaled back their demands. But diminished expectations exact their own price.”
