Join us on Monday, October 24 for another Beer & Transit after the MBTA Rider Oversight Committee meeting. This month, we’ll hear from Margaret “Peggy” Griffin, Civil Rights Officer at the Federal Transit Administration at the general meeting, 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.
