BID Ambassadors Making a Difference.

Ambassadors jumpstart vehicles for motorists

"I am writing to thank the BID. I was doing some personal business on Federal Street when my car battery died and I could not start my car. Fortunately, I met Ambassador Bruce, who was very, very helpful.  Without your help, I am sure it would've been a very long and costly day." 
-- Edward L.

Ambassadors provide umbrellas when it's raining

"I had a long walk today in Downtown Boston and didn't have my umbrella while it was pouring rain. Ambassador Don handed over his umbrella ... he was wonderful, friendly, gracious -- and we really appreciated it!"
-- Meena J.

Ambassadors help build a daytrip

"I especially appreciated that they suggested the African American National Historical Park and walking tour. That was not on our radar. It was a great part of Bostonian history we had not thought to explore"

-- Julie
