Outside View of Mass. Pike

This article is more than 10 years old.

Amidst the debate over what Massachusetts should do about its turnpike costs and Big Dig debt, we thought it would be interesting to compare it with similar toll roads outside the Bay State.

In a survey earlier this year, The Reason Foundation ranked the Mass. Pike as the most inefficient toll road in the United States.

Robert Poole is Director of Transportation Studies at Reason, a non-profit public policy research institute. He joins WBUR's Bob Oakes to talk about the Pike.

This program aired on December 2, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
