Re: Support for Late Night Service

Dear Chairman Aiello,

WalkBoston has followed the news that the Conservation Law Foundation (“CLF”), Alternatives for Community and Environment (“ACE”) and Greater Four Corners Action Coalition (“Four Corners”) filed a complaint on July 26, 2016 asking the Federal Transit Administration compel the MBTA to implement an alternative to Late-Night Service that would reduce the disproportionately high and adverse effects canceling Late-Night Service had on low-income and minority riders.

WalkBoston has long worked with many community partners to improve the walking-transit connection because it is crucial to providing the necessary mobility options for transit dependent communities. We are writing to you today in support of the objectives of CLF’s suit to ensure that late night service is provided.

We look forward to an MBTA plan that helps to ensure that the Boston metropolitan area provides economic opportunity for all.

Best regards,
Wendy Landman
Executive Director
