Description

This event is part of the official rollout of TransitMatters' latest report, Regional Rail Proof of Concept: How to Provide Frequent, All-day Service on the Worcester Line. The event will be held Tuesday, 9/17 at 2 PM in conjunction with the Worcester Regional Chamber at their office in Downtown Worcester.

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.

Our follow-up to last year's report puts 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).

TransitMatters and the Worcester Regional Chamber hope you are able to join us. Details are included below, please RSVP to save your spot and a physical copy of the report. Please let us know if you have any questions.
