Research Associate Attanucci’s Research Informs New MIT Commuting Benefits
On June 14, MIT announced the launch of Access MIT, a new series of commuter benefits for MIT faculty and staff. Benefits include free unlimited subway and local bus usage, increased subsidies for parking at MBTA stations and commuter rail tickets, and a shift to pay-per-day parking at many lots on campus. Access MIT stemmed from initial research conducted by the Transit Lab and CEE Research Associate John Attanucci. Attanucci says, “with this new approach, commuters will be able to drive one day then ride the T the next. By having options, we can begin changing the way people think about commuting.” Read more on MIT News.
