Commuter Rail Local Impact Study

The Committee developed a number of questions surrounding the possibility of commuter rail being extended to Buzards Bay from the Lakeville/Middleboro stop, a distance of 18 miles on newly upgraded track. With the support of the Board of Selectmen, the technical/planning staff at the Cape Cod Commission was asked to assist the Committee in finding answers.

The resulting report, Buzzards Bay Commuter Rail Extension: Local Impact Report, was presented to the Committee at its meeting on April 9. The Committee voted unanimously to accept the report and to forward it to the Board of Selectmen.

The report is attached here.
