According to According to Patch.com, (https://www.cleargov.com/massachusetts/middlesex/town/bedford/2015/expenditures/benchmarking?perperson=true&prefix=$&postfix=&subcategories=24022), the Town of Bedford collects, and spends, 170% more per capita each year than the average for Massachusetts.

Are there no available resources for the safety and comfort of those who need MBTA transportation in and out of Bedford?

The accompanying photo — taken at evening commute, Tuesday, 5 pm, a full five days after the 9” snowfall last Thursday — reveals a main town MBTA bus stop and commuter bench still inaccessible to bus riders because of piled up snow.
