The MBTA ROC submitted a letter asking the MBTA to keep the current late-night service running; however, the ROC is also asking the MBTA to consider a new 24/7 bus-only lifeline network if late-night service is terminated. We are deeply concerned for those with limited resources whose daily lives and work patterns require travel during overnight periods, especially those who have inadequate or no other transit options. A 24/7 bus-only lifeline network would ensure that overnight travel remains possible for those who need it. Late-night service should not end until the MBTA finds a way to minimize the impact on these populations.
Our letter to the MBTA is provided below:
