Weston to join regional public transit project

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 3, 2007 10:34 AM


Selectmen have voted to begin the process of joining the newly formed MetroWest Regional Transit Authority, paving the way for public transportation links within points in Weston and with neighboring communities, officials said.

A law sponsored last year by local legislators allows towns without fixed-route MBTA bus service to use part of their state public transportation assessment to create regional transit authorities. Donna VanderClock, Weston's town manager, said the town's assessment for the current fiscal year was $233,155.

The six towns currently included in the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority are Ashland, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Natick, and Wayland. Sherborn also recently voted to join.
