Blog - Regional Transportation Advisory Council Update: June 2016

  • The Advisory Council has begun a series of conversations about how the region’s transit system can evolve to meet the needs of residents in a time of changing commuter travel preferences and new technologies. In June, the Council heard a presentation about current MBTA technology initiatives designed to improve transit service.

    At the next meeting, which will take place at the State Transportation Building on August 10 at 3:00 PM, the discussion will focus on MassDOT’s planning for autonomous vehicles. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

    The Advisory Council will not formally convene in July. On July 13, members are scheduled to visit the Commuter Rail Maintenance Facility in Somerville. For more information or to sign up for the field trip, please contact David Fargen at 857-702-3654 or
