MassDOT Hosting Virtual Informational Meeting on Northern Tier Passenger Rail Study July 14

PLEASE SHARE

BOSTON – The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) announced it is hosting a virtual public information meeting for the Northern Tier Passenger Rail Study. 

The meeting is scheduled to be held on Thursday, July 14, at 6 p.m. via Zoom.

The study is examining the potential benefits, costs, and investments necessary to implement passenger rail service from North Adams to Greenfield and Boston, with the speed, frequency, and reliability necessary to be a competitive option for travel along this corridor.

This new passenger rail service would provide:

  • An alternative means of transportation for people living in the western and central counties along this corridor to more easily travel to the Greater Boston Metro Region.
  • A means for people living in the Boston area to more easily travel to the northern areas of Berkshire, Franklin and Worcester Counties.

At this meeting, the study team will share an overview of the study’s background, review the existing conditions analysis, and garner feedback on issues and opportunities along the corridor.

The meeting materials will also be available after the meeting on the study website.

The meeting information, including the registration link, are currently available on the study website under Upcoming Events. 

Once registered, individuals will receive a confirmation email from Zoom with information about joining the webinar.
