The MBTA plans to increase service on the Framingham/Worcester Line and seeks your suggestions for train times on the expanded schedule. With 13,000 customers riding with us every weekday—and growing— this expansion will build on the additional peak train departures introduced last fall and spring. We are also undertaking additional improvements to the Worcester Line, including a new station at Yawkey, track and signal upgrades, and adding new trains to the fleet. These investments will increase capacity, allow schedule flexibility, reduce travel time, improve reliability, and enhance safety, comfort and convenience.
To help the MBTA develop an expanded schedule that will best serve customers and stakeholders, please attend an upcoming Public Information Meeting and share your feedback. Meetings have been scheduled for the following dates and locations:
Monday, November 18, 7:30 PM, CMRPC, Union Station, 2 Washington Square, 2nd Floor, Worcester
Wednesday, November 20, 7 PM, Nevins Hall, Memorial Building, 150 Concord Street, Framingham
If you are unable to attend a meeting, and would like to comment on the expanded service planning for the Framingham/Worcester Line, please email your suggestions to email@example.com by November 22, 2013.
