massachusetts North - South Rail link

North – South rail link

The idea for The North – South Rail Link to connect Boston’s North and South Stations has been around since both stations have been open. If done correctly it should allow people to make direct connections for trains at either station or make a direct connection for the airport rather than going out of their way to make the proper connections for the airport.
Here are my suggestions:

· With regards to having a direct link between North and South Stations, find a way to connect them directly even if it means a new subway line or a branch of an existing subway line that goes direct between stations. Set it up so that the connection allows people to make direct connections for Amtrak service and Silver Line service to Logan International Airport.
· Set up the connections up as independent commuter rail lines that cut across the various existing lines similar like how Routes 128 and 495 go north and south around Boston in a semi-circular fashion. Also design it to be cost effective for everyone and would permit the passengers to go back and forth in a timely fashion comparable to driving when possible.
· Where possible, expand subway lines to meet up with more of the commuter rail lines or to connect with more commuter rail stations on each line. Find a way of doing this that would be cost efficient and would have the potential draw more riders.
· Set up the link or links in a way to help alleviate any potential bottlenecks caused by an emergency situation that would have people looking to leave the city any possible.
