New Bedford Whales Tooth Contest Graphic
MassDOT and the City of New Bedford announced an informal design competition for a new station near Route 18 to be known as Whale’s Tooth.  The multi-modal station will be built as part of the South Coast Rail project and may host a new local and intercity bus terminal.  The announcement was made in New Bedford City Hall by Mayor Scott W. Lang and Kristina Egan, Director of South Coast Rail, MassDOT. 

In addition to holding a design contest, the City, MassDOT, and the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority have launched an initiative to identify ways to improve local bus service and provide service to the Whale’s Tooth station.  Customer surveys are underway to gather information from riders and the larger public.  Recommendations will be released next year in the first comprehensive report ever developed for the bus authority.

The contest poster and background information about the station site are posted on the project website, www.mass.gov/southcoastrail.  Submissions are due on December 20, 2010, and must include one or two drawings or renderings and a description and rationale for the design.
