We're really excited about #RegionalRail Phase 1 being included in this bond bill. This is a transformative project that reimagines what our Commuter Rail network can do for commuters, students, and residents across the region! πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ’ΌπŸ§•πŸ»πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦ΌπŸ‘΄πŸΏπŸ‘¨β€πŸ’»
#RegionalRail is about more capacity and more service, it's about #equity, and it's about economic development and more. Thanks to #mapoli for listening. With a few more amendments we can make this a reality.
#RegionalRail Phase 1 is about more trains during peak to relieve congestion 😟on the 🚞 rails and the πŸš™πŸš— road. In some cases the number of train during the peak (6:30-9:30 or 4-8) will increase by 50%!!! That's thousands of seats on nearly every corridor in and out of Boston!

Hey, guess what? It's time for my weekly summary of the @MBTA FMCB meeting. No meeting the next two Mondays because of the holidays, and the meeting was jam-packed. Scheduled start time was 11:00 but the @MassDOT Capital Programs Committee didn't release the room until 11:15ish.
I have nine pages of notes in addition to the written version of my own comments. The meeting started with two items pushed up on the schedule ahead of the public comments. First up was a retirement citation for the MassDOT highway division's chief snow and ice engineer.
Second up was Gina Fiandaca and Vineet Gupta of @BostonBTD talking about transit elements of the Go Boston 2030 plan. Gupta did most of the speaking. He started with an explanation of the three primary areas BTD wants to focus its transportation efforts on.
