The Registry of Motor Vehicles today opened a second branch on the MassPike at the eastbound Natick service plaza. The first branch along the Pike opened last week at the eastbound Charlton rest stop.
RMV Registrar Rachel Kaprielian says the Charlton branch in the first week served 50 more customers daily compared to the closed Southbridge branch.
The RMV will save $1.7 million by closing nearly a dozen high-cost branches such as Framingham and Southbridge and moving to available space owned or operated by the MassPike, Mass Highway, MBTA, Massport and other public agencies.
The Natick RMV is an express branch offering only license and registration service. All customers are encouraged to avoid lines and visit the RMV website for license, registration, title and other business.
