GovDeliveryHeader_20190207MassDOT is pleased to introduce the East-West Passenger Rail Study.

The study will examine the costs, benefits, and investments necessary to implement a range of passenger rail service alternatives from Boston to Springfield and Pittsfield, up to and including high speed rail.

Please join MassDOT and the study team for the first public meeting as follows:

Tuesday, March 12, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, UMass Center at Springfield, Classroom 014, Tower Square, 1500 Main Street, Springfield

The goal of the meeting is to:

  • Inform attendees about the study scope and existing conditions on the corridor
  • Learn from attendees about what they would like to see in rail service alternatives

The meeting will begin with a presentation at 6:00 PM, followed by time for Q+A. The open house will begin at 6:45 PM, where participants can view study materials in more detail and speak directly with members of the study team.

Parking: If you would like to park in the Tower Square garage, parking will be validated at $5 per car. Meeting attendees can park on all levels but are encouraged to park on Level A.

Please share this email with any friends or neighbors who may also be interested in this important study. Visit the project website to sign up for email updates and learn more.

For those who cannot attend the public meeting, all meeting materials will be posted online and feedback accepted via email. For questions or comments, email MassDOT Project Manager Jennifer Slesinger at jennifer.slesinger@dot.state.ma.us.
