Beer & Transit Header

Beer & Transit is back! Join us on Monday, July 25, to hear new MBTA Chief Financial Officer Michael Abramo at the general meeting of the MBTA Rider Oversight Committee , followed by discussion, networking, and drinks.

The Rider Oversight Committee seeks to bridge the gap between the MBTA and the Public, addressing issues that come to its attention through a variety of means and providing recommendations to the MBTA that communicate the needs and concerns of all riders. The group’s general meetings are open to the public and occur monthly in the Massachusetts State Transportation Building.
