    down Unfortunately I often look for rides because public transportation is inconvenient and unreliable she said What is typically a 10 minute drive Heathman said takes one hour and two buses to complete with public transportation And she added since the buses run less frequently at night it often includes a 45 minute walk home or an hour wait for a transfer Pickler had a similar story He said he has had to turn down jobs because the buses from Boston to Saugus don t run late enough One evening when the job was too good to pass up Pickler said he spent five hours sitting in Haymarket Square waiting for a bus Hilary Hebert said she ended up moving into a dorm at Salem State University because public transportation from Beverly was too unreliable to count on Wil Cespedes from Massachusetts Senior Action Council said it irritated him that the MBTA received subsidies yet continued to hike prices making it nearly cost prohibitive for the people who need it most However he said he also believed that if everyone worked together the issues could be resolved MBTA Manager Jose Rodriguez said he took the report and the students concerns seriously I will bring this back and we ll have a discussion on what happened here he said referring to the student statements Representatives from Greater Lynn Senior Services including Executive Director and Councilor at large Paul Crowley were also on hand for the event It s very important to us Crowley said We re always interested in these types of developments and to have a chance to share our ideas as well Related Chapter North Shore Community College Salem State University About Us Our Leadership Our Mission Accomplishments Chapters Berkshire Community College Fitchburg State University Holyoke Community College Mass
