On March 12, 2018 GSS sent a letter addressed to Massachusetts Legislators regarding crucial support for the Pioneer Valley Transit Authority (PVTA): read it here.

This letter was sent to the members off the House Committee on Ways and Means (Chair: Jeffrey Sanchez), the members of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means (Chair: Karen Spilka), Representative Solomon Goldstein-Rose, and Senator Stanley Rosenburg. Without support from the Commonwealth, the PVTA is facing funding gaps and a budget shortfall that will cause service cuts and fare increases.
