SOUTH SHORE — The Towns of Cohasset, Hingham, Hull and Scituate, as part of their “Save the Greenbush-Save the Boat” campaign, have produced a video PSA showing the need to preserve ferry service on the South Shore.
The video was shot during the campaign-sponsored “Ride the Ferry Day” earlier this month, where riders, elected officials and community activists were encouraged to take the morning ferry into Boston from either Hingham or Hull. Riders expressed their concern over the MBTA’s proposed elimination of ferry as part of the T’s Forging Ahead plan.
“[The ferry] is one of the biggest assets of the entire Boston area,” said regular ferry rider and Hull resident Tim Pearson. “If they cut it, it reduces the chances we’re going to stay here for the long term, in Boston in general, let alone Hull.”
The Towns of Cohasset, Hingham, Hull and Scituate launched the “Save the Greenbush-Save the Boat” campaign to voice their strong opposition to the MBTA’s proposed cuts to transit services in the region. Town leaders have been encouraged by the response the campaign has received, and urge residents to continue to submit their comments to the MBTA Advisory Board by emailing [email protected].
The MBTA is expected to vote on the proposed cuts during a meeting on Dec. 7.
