Should the T be free?

More communities are asking that, and experimenting with the answers.

The city of Lawrence recently announced an extension of a city pilot program for free buses. Should Boston, and the rest of the Commonwealth, follow suit?

We hear from WBUR Reporter Bruce Gellerman about the growing movement to make public transit free in Massachusetts. We also take listener calls with Stacy Thompson, Executive Director of LiveableStreets Alliance, Kendrys Vasquez, Acting Mayor of Lawrence, and Brian Kane, Executive Director of the MBTA Advisory Board.

This segment aired on July 21, 2021.
