CLOWN WORLD: Boston Pushes To Make Public Transportation Free For Blacks Because … Racism

Boston transportation advocates push for bond bill, free buses

Boston transportation activists are pushing to advance the languishing state transportation bond bill and advance the idea of free MBTA buses, tying the push for cheaper and better transit in with recent calls for racial justice.

Buses that go up and down through the Black and brown community need to be free,” City Council President Kim Janey said at a press conference in her Roxbury district. “This is a racial-justice issue — this is an economic-justice issue.”
