The bill for better service on the Fairmount  Line is in the Ways and Means Committee — and it needs YOUR help!

Next stop — a favorable vote by the Legislature — this has to happen by July 31st. But we need calls TODAY.

Bill H2723 that would finally give us the service we need and deserve on the Fairmount Line.

 If it this bill passes:

Trains will run every 15 minutes or less
You can use your Charlie Card on the Fairmount Line
There will be much better signage and marketing
Bill H2723 is now in the House Ways and Means Committee. It won’t become law without a few more steps — and it needs your help!

Take Action!

Please pick at least 5 members of the Ways and Means committee. Send them a short email to ask them to move bill H2723 favorably out of Ways and Means. Let them know why you want to see better service on the Fairmount Line — the only rapid transit available for many Boston families!

Find the members of the committee, with links to their email addresses here.

Email Alex Nadel or call him at 617-364-7300 x24 for more information.
