  • MBTA Extending Providence Commuter Rail to Airport

    November 30th, 2010
    mbta, transport  [html]
    After recieving funding in 2005 and taking a while to begin construction, the providence/stoughton line out of south station will be running several trips a day to TF Green on monday. It's always been annoying that you couldn't get from the airport to boston on the mbta, even though the mbta runs commuter rail to providence. Now for things like neffa (in mansfield), flying into PVD is an option. Service expansion is exciting.
