Business & Government Forum-TransitMatters
This event is part of the official roll out of TransitMatters' latest report, Regional Rail Proof of Concept: How to Provide Frequent, All-day Service on the Worcester Line.
The Commonwealth faces a decade of significant vehicular mobility disruption on Interstate 90 (the Massachusetts Turnpike) due to anticipated reconstruction and relocation of the elevated highway approaching downtown Boston and private sector air rights developments in the same area. The need for frequent and reliable transit and rail mobility along this corridor is urgent.
Following up to last year's report putting forth both short-term and long-term solutions for the Metro West-Worcester corridor. The ultimate goal is a transition to Regional Rail (a vision for fast, frequent, all day, electrified service set forth in our Regional Rail report).
