The Cape Rail Study, led by the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and assisted by a consultant team, will evaluate the potential for extending year-round passenger rail to Cape Cod with connections to the communities of Middleborough and Wareham.

Advisory Group Meeting 1 - November 19, 2020

The first Advisory Group meeting for the Cape Rail Study was held on Thursday, November 19, 2020 to discuss the context for the study, to describe existing conditions, and to develop the purpose, need, and potential alternatives for the analysis. Below are links to a copy of the meeting presentation, meeting notes, and a recording of the meeting. 

The Advisory Group, including representation from the Town of Bourne and other key regional and local stakeholders, will provide input throughout the study process. Input from the Advisory Group meeting will be important in establishing the framework for the study. Following the meeting, MassDOT and the consultant team will estimate potential ridership as well as capital and operating costs associated with alternatives developed through the process. Outcomes will be reviewed and discussed at a second Advisory Group meeting.
