MBTA Stroller Ban?

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, colloquially known as the "T," is considering a ban on open strollers in buses and subways. For city parents like us who rely on the T for our excursions and errands, this move would be disastrous. In an era defined by high fuel costs and concerns about climate change, shouldn't we be taking steps to encourage and invest in public transportation rather than placing hurdles to discourage mass transit?

I hope you will take a minute to vote "no" on the MBTA's website survey seeking input on this topic. Please visit this link and click on the stroller icon in the top left of the screen to help keep the city accessible to families!

UPDATE (5/4): According to this Boston Globe article, the T has decided not to change their stroller policy for now. Let's hope the policy remains unchanged indefinitely...
