I share the concerns and frustration regarding the schedule change and on-time performance for the Needham commuter rail. I have attached a letter sent to Secretary Stephanie Pollack. I have also met with the Needham Transportation Committee and with my colleagues, Senator Rush and Senator Ross as we have formally supported the letter sent by the Committee.
It is my understanding that a Keolis Representative was onboard on June 22nd seeking feedback from commuters on the schedule change. It seems that our concerns are being heard and we will continue those discussions.
I am dedicated to ensuring safe and reliable service for all Needham Train commuters and I will continue to work with the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and Keolis Commuter Services.
Your communications to me are an invaluable asset to inform the strategies we must pursue to improve this necessary service.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
