We need to stand together to Save the Mattapan Trolley

Last month, the MBTA revealed that it needed more time to study the Mattapan Trolley line, leaving many to believe "the status of the historic streetcars [are] in doubt (The Boston Globe)."  Despite promises of a $7.9 million investment in the trolley, there has been little communication from the MBTA regarding how that money would be used to keep it functional while the study assessing the route is underway. This is unacceptable. Thousands of MBTA riders rely on the Mattapan Trolley everyday to connect them to the Red Line at Ashmont Station, and they add significant character and charm to our communities. In response, I am launching a petition to send a clear message to Governor Baker and the MBTA that we need to save the Mattapan Trolley line!
Please like, share, and retweet my posts on Facebook and Twitter, and share the petition with your friends and neighbors who rely on the Mattapan Trolley. We need to stand together to show Governor Baker and the MBTA that the Trolleys are important to the communities of Dorchester, Hyde Park, Mattapan, and Milton.
