The MBTA is outmoded, unsafe and incapable of withstanding the rigors of New England winters. When one link in its corroded chain breaks the whole system is thrown into disarray, when multiple links break at once the entire city and region collapses into massive gridlock. Trains are kept decades beyond their service life because for decades nobody in state government wanted to take responsibility to fund maintenence and modernization of public transit.
So here's where you come in. If the internet can help one working class guy in Detroit who struggles every day to get to work surely we can help the hundreds of thousands of working class people in Boston who rely on the decrepit MBTA to get them to work, school, doctors appointments or the grocery store.
All we're asking for is 30 billion dollars (GoFundMe limited this to 300 million dollars though).
$50: I will scream your name on an Orange line car for 45 minutes during rush hour.
$200: you are given carte blanche to forcibly remove backpacks from passengers and throw them into the pit between platforms from the hours of 6am-9am and 3pm-7pm
$500: gets you a "Monthly LinkPass Plus" same unlimited bus and subway rides as the standard LinkPass but you're allowed to make any train on the B Line go express between Kenmore and Packard's Corner.
$15,000: Whenever you ride the Green Line you have the option of taking one of the historical cars stored at Boylston Street or the Mattapan Line; you won't notice the difference in your commute.
$10,000,000: You can rename Tufts Medical Center.
$130,000,000: Your very own state funded Legoland with an Orange Line station.
$3,000,000,000: A light rail replacement for the Washington Street Elev-ahahahahahahahahahaha you fell for it.
$30,000,000,000: A transit system barely adequate for the needs of a 21st century global city.
