Massachusetts Transportation Day

Good luck to Massachusetts transportation advocates on “Transportation Day” (April 2), when supporters of Governor Deval Patrick’s revenue plan are asked to contact their legislators or show up at the Statehouse or other locations.
Massachusetts is leading the way in showing us that Smart Growth, transit, and transportation reform people can make common cause with more traditional transportation folks around a critical agenda of investment in rejuvenating and modernizing the transportation system. 
For a summary of the plan - and why Smart Growth people should be on it - see the Massachusetts Smart Growth Alliance summary here.
The leadership of Governor Patrick is obviously critical, and hopefully this episode will demonstrate that courage is rewarded!  As I have noted before, my preference is still for a gas tax, but any forward movement is progress.
Happy Transportation Day!
