Medway hoping to join regional transit authority

Posted by Martin Finucane March 2, 2007 10:49 AM


The town hopes to join the Greater Attleboro Regional Transit Authority, GATRA, which provides bus service to more than a dozen Southeastern Massachusetts communities.

State legislation approved last year permits towns to redirect their MBTA payments to other transit options. Medway has $79,000 to spend. If accepted into GATRA, Medway would name a resident to serve on its board and establish a task force to consider bus routes.
