Looks like we may be two years away from hoping on a train in Copley Square and, in 10 minutes, with no changes, being dropped off in the heart of Boston’s newest neighborhood. According to MassDOT secretary Richard Davey, the plan is to use existing tracks that are already in place and to connect with the MBTA tracks that run into Back Bay Station.
It looks like the likelihood of this plan going through is fairly high as there is little construction that would need to be done and MassDOT already has travel rights on most of the existing track. Good news for an area crying out for better public transit to avoid the traffic jams the area has seen of late.
Starting a dialogue on the future of urban living in Boston and beyond.
