Three of the most-read stories from CommonWealth ... related to transportation, and the top story, about a Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation study, focused on transportation and the fallout from COVID and remote work on the downtown Boston office market.

The top story, coming in at 53,000 pageviews, focused on the Massachusetts Taxpayers report arguing that urban economies are “on the precipice” due to high office vacancy rates and low public transit ridership. The rise in remote work and the poor state of the MBTA were partly to blame.
