Free Rides on the Fairmount Indigo Line from MAY 8th – MAY21st

Free Rides on the Fairmount Indigo Line from MAY 8th – MAY21st

Hop on board the Fairmount Indigo Line!  On April 27, the Fairmount Indigo Transit Coalition announced two weeks of free rides on the Fairmount Indigo Line to increase community awareness of service on the line and to increase ridership.  No fares needed on those days to travel from any station between Readville and South Station!
 
U.S. Congressman Michael Capuano generously funded the promotion with over $50,000 to encourage  residents to take advantage of  low fares and faster service for commuting to work or school. The promotion is  in cooperation with the MBTA.  Congressman Capuano has been a strong advocate for transforming the line for improved transit and as an economic stimulus. 
 
“The line has never really received advertisement in general for people who don’t ride it every day,” according to Capuano. “ In order to break that routine, people have to see a viable alternative to use.”
 
Members of the Fairmount Indigo CDC Collaborative with the Fairmount/Indigo Transit Coalition will conduct head counts at each station during the promotion. The MBTA will also monitor the ridership.
