Research: Corporate Fair Share for Transportation

After years of underinvestment, Massachusetts’ transportation systems are at a crisis point. Because of the failures of our transportation systems, many working families in Massachusetts are struggling with lengthy commutes, high transportation costs, and a lack of opportunity. In order to build the modern, reliable transportation systems we need all across the Commonwealth, we need significant new revenue for
investment in transportation.

The Green Justice Coalition and Raise Up Massachusetts believe that any transportation revenue package considered by the Legislature this year must move us toward a more equitable and sustainable transportation system, and toward a more progressive tax system that reduces economic inequality. To do so, we support an economically progressive transportation revenue package that balances any regressive “user taxes” with revenue generated by ensuring that large, profitable corporations are paying their fair share.
