Do you care about getting good service (regular trains, being able to use your Charlie Card) on the Fairmount Line?

You can help pass House Bill 2723 – which would bring better service!

Send an email with your testimoney to: Representative William Straus (William.Straus@mahouse.gov), Chair of the Joint Committee on Transportation.  Tell him you support House Bill 2723 and briefly explain why you need or want better service on the Fairmount Line.
