Viet Aid’s work builds from the transit-oriented character of Fields Corner to meet overlapping social and environmental needs. In Boston and around the county, rents in transit-rich neighborhoods are rising, forcing low- and moderate- income residents to move out of their neighborhoods. For low-income families who often do not have cars, public transit is critical to access jobs, schools, services and other opportunities. Get on the RED supports the right to affordable housing and equitable transportation access for the community’s most vulnerable populations.
Operating since 1927 the Fields Corner T is located along the Red Line that runs north-south through Boston and adjacent communities connecting them with the downtown area and the Green, Orange, and Silver metro lines.
The Fields Corner T provides easy access to the rest of the city. In less than 30min and through public transportation someone living in Fields Corner can access downtown and most of Boston’s neighborhoods. In less than 45 minutes, the same resident can access Cambridge and most of Somerville.30 minutes access from Fields Corner using public transportation.
