- Our Work
The Fairmount Indigo Network (FIN) is an umbrella entity comprised of 35 organizations, coalitions and individuals, and a multitude of external partner organizations working on comprehensive policy campaigns, community development and research along the Fairmount Line corridor neighborhoods of Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan and Hyde Park.
Within the Fairmount Indigo Corridor, 135,000 Bostonians have not benefited equally from the city’s recent economic gains. At the same time, the corridor contains significant assets that can support and grow existing businesses and increase the number of local jobs. With that in mind, The American City Coalition, LISC Boston, and Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, and a working group developed a series of place-based recommendations that can be piloted within the Fairmount Indigo Corridor.
This report by The Boston Foundation identifyies challenges and strategies for increasing ridership on the Fairmount Line, including improving station access, reducing travel time to South Station, offering free transfers, and much more. The Fairmount Indigo Network was a critical partner in this work.
