mbta-new-commuter-rail-coaches-april-25-2013MassDOT will hold a public meeting on the South Coast Rail “Notice of Project Change” as follows:

Thursday, May 11, 6:30 p.m. Taunton High School auditorium, 50 Williams Street, Taunton.

MassDOT filed an SCR Notice of Project Change (NPC) on March 15, 2017, to adopt a phased approach to provide early service, years before revenue service is currently considered to be possible. Phase 1 will provide service from New Bedford, Fall River and Taunton to Boston by building the Southern Triangle, and using the Middleborough Secondary Line and the existing Middleborough/Lakeville Commuter Rail Line. For Phase 2, MassDOT will continue to advance the full Stoughton Electric Alternative design.

The first public meeting was held in Dartmouth on Thursday, April 13, 2017, and all content shown during the presentation on April 13 will be shown in Taunton on May 11. A copy of the public meeting presentation is now available. Please read more about the project, and download the NPC, a fact sheet (in English, Spanish and Portuguese) and public meeting flyer on the project website: www.mass.gov/southcoastrail
