In an effort to gain a better understanding of the public’s need for late night service, the MBTA has launched a survey this week. Late night MBTA service would have a huge impact on those who rely heavily on public transportation, so this survey is a great way for those who would benefit from such service to make their voices heard. It addresses important aspects of potential late night service to ensure it is as affordable and equitable as possible.
The more feedback MBTA receives on this survey, the better – please be sure to complete the survey as well as spread the word about it. The survey is available until Friday, December 16, 2016 at: www.mbta.com/nightbus. Additionally, it is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese and will soon also be available in Chinese, Vietnamese, Haitian Creole and Cape Verdean Creole.
For more information or to obtain printed surveys from the City, contact Tegin Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-349-4615.
EZRide will operate fare free for the week of October 17-21.
We request that you make a donation whenever you ride instead. If you usually ride fare free with a pass sticker as a corporate benefit, please consider pitching in this week.
We will send all farebox proceeds for the week to the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation. SBHF is dedicated to providing essential health services to the people of Southern Haiti, especially the most vulnerable. Founded in 1983, SBHF runs a Haitian-led full service hospital that is now the only fully functioning referral hospital on the southern peninsula of Haiti - the area most affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Hard working Haitian-Americans are the backbone of EZRide service. Many of the our drivers and other staff are of Haitian descent, including two drivers who started with the service when Paul Revere took over in 2008.
Please help us honor their service by providing hurricane relief. Cash or checks payable to St. Boniface Haiti Foundation. And you can always contribute directly via the SBHF website, haitihealth.org
Thanks for using EZRide, and for your generosity.
Thanks for Hurricane Relief Donations
Charles River Transportation Management Association and EZRide would like to thank EZRide passengers for their contributions to St. Boniface Haiti Foundation the week of October 17th. $875 was raised and will go towards providing essential health services to those affected by Hurricane Matthew. The need continues after the storm has passed from the headlines.
If you did not get the chance to make a donation to SBHF, please feel free to do so here: http://bit.ly/2dH6wXO
From the St. Boniface website:
"Hurricane Matthew will have long-lasting effects in southern Haiti. Hunger and disease are major concerns. St. Boniface Hospital is the best equipped referral center in the region, and we are receiveing patients with complex and critical needs from some of the hardest hit areas.
SBHF is also on the front lines of responding to the cholera crisis, monitoring for new outbreaks in our area and mobilizing our community health network to provide water treatment and education in communities struggling with unsafe water sources."
Again, thank you so much to our passengers for helping us honor EZRide’s hard-working Haitian-American drivers. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Tomorrow PARK(ing) Day will raise awareness for the need for open space in urban areas, and for dialogue about how public space is allocated.
The City of Cambridge and sponsoring organizations will be turning parking spaces to park places for the day. Residents, artists, and activists are welcome to come to these “PARK(ing)” spaces and see the 97 different organizations’ and City Department’s temporary parks.
Charles River TMA and EZRide Shuttle are sponsoring the biggest little parklet, three spaces outside Abigails Restaurant 291 Third Street between Binney and Broadway.
Stop by tomorrow and let's talk about bus-bike safety from 8AM-6pm
Curate Snacks and Hint Water will provide the refreshments
Here at CRTMA and at our member businesses, we bike. And we run a transit service. We walk. And yes, we drive. We think Parking Day is a great way to talk about complete streets, and safe use by all users.
Starting Monday, August 1, all EZRide Shuttles will return to normal routes and stop in the Kendall area. Here's what to know:
For more information on stop locations, please see our Route Maps and Stops Guide.
This marks the end of Main Street Reconstruction detours in Kendall - thanks to all our riders for their patience during this project!
