June 2011 Report: Youth Way on the MBTA

Comments

June 28, 2011

Thousands of youths in the Boston area use the MBTA every weekday to get to school and after-school extracurricular activities. For some, the cost of riding the T is a heavy burden- even preventing students from being able to attend school. On Tuesday's Callie Crossley Show, we meet two teens working on a youth campaign to get the MBTA to create an improved Youth Pass- one that would cost $10/month, be available to anyone aged 12 to 21, and have no time restrictions.

Youth Way on the MBTA leaders Amatullah Mervin, 18, and Davonte Jordan, 17, join us. They are co-authors of the June 2011 Report: Opportuni(T): Youth Riders, the Affordability Crisis, and the Youth Pass Solution.
