The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) and the MBTA are holding an informational open house and online survey to encourage members of the public to learn more about and comment on the MBTA’s Rail Vision, a two-year study intended to identify current and future Commuter Rail needs and improvements.
The Rail Vision Open House will be held on Tuesday, March 5, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m., in the State Transportation Building, 10 Park Plaza, in the second floor Board Room. In addition, a Rail Vision survey may be accessed online: www.MBTARailVisionSurvey.com. The survey takes less than one minute to complete and will allow MassDOT and MBTA officials to become aware of what’s important to respondents, what may incentivize drivers to use public transit, and what barriers may exist to allowing members of the public to use the commuter rail on a regular basis.
Project presentations and meeting summaries are posted on the website. The website includes a project contact and sign-up for project emails and notices.
The MBTA Commuter Rail system is one of the largest in the nation, operating fourteen Commuter Rail lines that serve fifty cities and towns.
The MBTA already has a future planning exercise underway for bus, subway and ferry, which is known as Focus40.
