Having the commuter rail stop in Allston or Brighton would be wonderful for this neighborhood in so many ways, so I hope you will join me in taking a few minutes to write a letter to support this valuable project.
The State Office of Transportation gave this presentation on June 15 explaining that a station location would be chosen based on design feasibility, expected ridership, connectivity with other transportation, local impacts, and cost. Based on this, a station at either Cambridge St (Sports Depot area) or Everett St (near the Stop & Stop) was recommended.
If you want the train to stop for us, please write to Secretary James Aloisi by Friday August 7. All letters should be sent to:
