The pandemic changed travel patterns around the region and the world, causing large reductions in public transportation. Many are wondering how communities should plan for post-pandemic public transit. The pandemic demonstrated the important roles that public transportation plays in providing basic mobility, however, the reduced ridership and fare revenues are currently expected to continue for years to come, therefore leading to a significant decline in overall operating revenue for public transportation systems.

What is the ‘Future of Work’ series?
Building on its successful “Future of Boston” series in 2020 and 2021, the Chamber has produced a new “Future of Work” series that is designed to share information and resources with the business community through multiple platforms, including forums, convenings, online discussions, virtual resources, and thought leadership pieces. As business leaders navigate the next normal, this robust series offers expert, timely perspectives that prepare the business community for what’s to come.
The future of our region requires resilient and agile companies that recognize the innovation and empathy required to support our vibrant, diverse workforce and communities, and keep the region and local companies competitive in the global marketplace.
