Northern Tier Passenger Rail Study Public Information Meeting #2

Hear the Latest Updates and Make YOUR Voice Heard!

On Thursday, October 26 from 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., MassDOT will give a formal public presentation via Zoom on the options they are considering for passenger rail along Route 2.

Increasing train transportation to our small city is crucial to both business and residential life, and we support the additional access the Northern Tier Rail would provide.

There are six scenarios, at least two of which are very promising for our region. Various proposals include stops in Athol, Greenfield, Shelburne Falls, and going into Porter Square in Cambridge, and then onto South Station in Boston. Proposals also include all-electric trains, at lower costs than other options.

These options represent an HISTORIC GAMECHANGER for our region’s economy, our climate, and our communities and we need your attendance at this meeting both to show MassDOT that our region and its people support getting this done AND so that you can provide your important feedback directly to MassDOT on the current options.
