South Coast Rail Coalition, September 17, 2014The Rail to Boston Coalition pitched their support for South Coast Rail at an event held at South Station this month.

Approximately 75 people – including state and local elected officials, residents, business owners, and Rail to Boston members– came together to represent one unified voice. Their message: make commuter rail service between Boston and the South Coast a reality.

Each speaker emphasized the need for South Coast Rail, calling the project not just a transportation improvement, but rather an economic and social investment. MBTA General Manager Dr. Beverly Scott, above, described the project as “catalytic and transformative…the key to quality of life” for South Coast residents.

The Rail to Boston Coalition, led by Co-Chairs Paul Chasse, CEO, Greater New Bedford Association of Realtors and Roy M. Nascimento, President & CEO, New Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce, is a group of major business and community organizations in Massachusetts leading a privately funded, collective advocacy effort to complete the South Coast Rail project.
