As the House began debating the transportation financing bill Monday, hundreds of senior citizens blocked traffic on Beacon Street in protest.
A motorcyclist was killed in a collision with an MBTA “The Ride” van in Jamaica Plain Monday morning.
A special commission appointed by the Governor after the i-Team’s report met at the Statehouse to try to drive down costs and improve service of MBTA’s The Ride.
Governor Deval Patrick is targeting the high cost of the MBTA’s transportation service for the elderly and disabled and crediting the I-Team for spotlighting the problem.
It’s called the Ride and its fleet of white sedans and handicapped accessible vans can be seen almost any day, all over eastern Massachusetts.
