I would like to see a rail line that connects the terminus of all the MBTA commuter lines that head into Boston. To use public transportaion to get from Fitchburg to Worcester one currently has to travel into Boston and then back out to Worcester. If that isn't feasible, maybe connecting a few stops into each line together would work.

Folks are too busy glorifying a failed President and Bashing a new one for Political reasons to consider such real progress.

So what is stopping this? Nothing! It isn't about money because as the great oracle Biden says ‘We Have to Go Spend Money to Keep From Going Bankrupt’. It doesn't matter if a $20b project serves 75 people since it is for the greater good.
