"Public transportation in Boston is truly pathetic"

The Daily Free Press: "“Public transportation in Boston is truly pathetic, especially the Green Line,” he said. “Of course, aside from NY, public transport in most U.S. cities is virtually nonexistent. Boston is filled with young people, and many don’t have cars. Good public transportation would make a big difference for them.”"

People need and want more #publictransit "Has anyone researched the effect public transportation in Southern Maine would have on the parking problem in Portsmouth?

Employees, seniors, adolescents and those who would prefer to own fewer cars or feel the stress of gas prices and car maintenance would be grateful to be supported by a system of public transportation. Elders in Kittery, Maine, fondly recall the days when such a service was available. Many of us are aging and the fear of not being able to drive is real. Services are inadequate or unavailable. For many, this necessitates a move or a limited lifestyle."
