As mentioned here upthread
, Cambridge recently commissioned a new Grand Junction Transit Feasibility Study. The Cambridge Transit Advisory Committee just hosted a meeting for an in process update on the study this past Thurs (June 1):
The Transit Advisory Committee will advance an agenda for a robust public transportation system for those who live and/or work in Cambridge.
They posted the meeting presentation:
Discussion: Grand Junction Transit Feasibility Study
-There will be another update meeting in September
-Seems like final report/recommendation is due end of year
Regarding the study itself, not much new/surprising in there...but
-Looks like they are ruling out anything but FRA-compliant equipment (e.g., no light rail or BRT)
-They are continuing to mention a fairly dense set of stops (Cambridgeport / Mass Ave / Kendall / East Camb / CX), which seems tough given the bullet above (EMUs?)
P.S., not sure where I should be posting these updates. If this heads the route of CR equipment, then I supposed it could go in CR thread. There's no grand junction specific thread that I'm aware of. Suggestions welcome.
