They took time to show off idea boards located at certain stops where T riders can jot down their thoughts with markers. At Ashmont the boards asked for visions for public transportation in 2020.

“The idea board was an idea folks came up with to generate civic conversation.” Davey said.

Davey wrote on the board that he wants the MBTA to be “well-funded.” Walsh’s contribution to the board was a wish to see 24-hour service.
