Rail Advisory Group Recommends Scenario 6-Full Transformation of the Commuter Rail
A summary of the scenarios are here . Scenario 6 envisions full electrification of the Commuter Rail with service every 15 minutes. It also calls for a link to North and South Station and a link to Kendall Square and Allston-Brighton through the future West Station. It would also speed up boarding and exiting with full high-level boarding platforms. It would required an investment of $28.9 billion.
Transportation Vision for the North Shore Coalition
18 Communities that make up the North Shore Coalition came together at Salem State’s Enterprise Center to sign on to a transportation vision to meet the needs of current and future residents, visitors, and workers. The vision includes a regional plan to improve mobility by prioritizing non-vehicular travel, the sharing of resources for a regional bike share program, fully electrifying the commuter rail system, and many more initiatives (you can read more about it here ). The sweeping vision would be paid for with a proposed modest hike in the gas tax, a carbon tax, a surcharge fee on Uber and Lyft, as well as additional road tolls. MAPC has called on the public to urge State legislators to make this vision a reality with a much needed investment in transportation. You can write to your legislators and tell them about your transportation priorities for the North Shore here.
