Natick, from here to there


You can probably get there from here. The question is, do you want to?

Natick Center Associates is hosting a forum tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Morse Institute Library on the town's public transit options, including the town's Neighborhood Bus system and Lift Bus.

Should they run more frequently, on different routes, or should access be improved for elderly and handicapped?

There will also be a presentation about new opportunities available to towns interested in expanding public transit. Towns were until recently required to provide funding to the MBTA whether service was available to residents or not. Now, many towns -- including those with commuter rail service like Natick -- are allowed to spend some of that MBTA funding on local needs.
