This is promising

Governor Deval Patrick is going to introduce a comprehensive overhaul of the Commonwealth's transportation policy before Thursday's Turnpike Authority board votes on toll increases.

Not so promising? Patrick is against a gas tax increase and says "user fees" (presumably using a congestion pricing-like automated system) are at least ten years off.

Meanwhile, the Turnpike Authority has scheduled a public hearing about toll changes on October 10 in Newton at 6:00 in the Veterans War Memorial Auditorium at City Hall.
