MAX Bus owner and managing director Connie Englert spoke with WMUA News’ Joshua Brown on the unique services the transportation service provides to Central Massachusetts residents. Areas in central and western Massachusetts are some of the most underserved in terms of transportation in the state, and happen to be some of the most impoverished and isolated. MAX Bus received government subsidies to address this. In a phone interview, Englert commented on the ways the public transportation industry must address accessibility, affordability, and sustainability today.
