The Harvard Crimson :: News :: University Plans Allsont T Stop
A report from Monday's Harvard Task Force meeting:
"The University will push Boston to establish a new commuter rail station near the Allston campus, Harvard officials said on Monday.
The stop is an outgrowth of a long standing Boston plan for a public transportation �urban ring� that would enable people to get into the western area of the city without being forced to connect through the Downtown Crossing and Park Street stations. Harvard wants to expand the ring more deeply into Allston than originally envisioned in order to create a �life science necklace� that would link Boston University, MIT, and Harvard. "
