Let me guess, the only solution will be to raise taxes.

Yes because Government Transportation is redistribution from hard working suburbanites to the lazy cities.

No, fares. And the bozos in Boston will scream bloody murder when they jack the fares up to cover the increased services.

Bostonian's want everything as long as they don't have to pay for it.

This is nothing but another attempt by the tax and spend crowd to get everybody conditioned to the perpetual need to raise the gas tax. Unfortunately, Boston will sell the ploy to the public transportation (MBTA) crowd to approve it, with little money going beyond Rt 128.

No, IDIOT!!! The solution will be to only charge people that drive...about 10 cents per mile (more, once people have ‘adjusted’). The idea of driving for free will soon end.

Coupla things. First, what are they paving the streets with?

Second, what have they been doing with all the money before now, that everything is in a critical/crisis state now?

Just put more “taxes-are-good” juice in the water.

There’s something in the water that makes that state as whacked as it is.

Here is my deficit reduction plan. Give up the “Smart Growth” ideology where straight roads are made crooked, crooked roads made more crooked, sidewalk jetties that take out car lanes, bike lanes that take out tax paying car lanes, roundabouts that shrink street area at intersections, speed bumps that beat on vehicle axles, and idiotic street graphitte such as painted islands, forced turn lanes, and impossible to see directives (forced turn arrows hidden in lines of cars ahead). It's a spending problem. We are buying useless $h!t for roadways that increases congestion and travel time losing money for the payers as well as costing money.

“It is clear to us that what our customers are asking for is more,” Davey said. “What they want is more reliability, they want more services. We have to find a way to do this.”

snip

Davey did not suggest how the state plans to raise the additional revenue.

Hey, Daaaaavy! How about you get your "customers" to pay the full tab. Then we will see how much they really want their $52 (or whatever it REALLY costs) ride across town.

“Davey did not suggest how the state plans to raise the additional revenue.”

Talk radio chatter last week mentioned a 15 cent hike in the gasoline price. Might have been a trial balloon, but High Test is $3.95 this week.
