What does the Governor's transportation plan mean for my region? Thanks to the plan's unprecedented focus on regional equity, it means a significant, guaranteed investment in rail, road and bridge, and regional transit in every region.
From the Berkshires and Western Massachusetts to the Cape & Islands, the plan ensures all regions paying into the system receive funding for services in proportion to their contribution. Three cents of the gas tax is devoted to rail projects south, west and north. Another 1.5 cents targets regional road, bridge, and public works projects. Another 1.5 cents provides a significant 66% increase in funding for Regional Transit Authorities.
We have added new regional links on the Reform & Renew web page showing benefits to Western Mass, South Coast, and South Shore- Cape & Islands.
