Fairmount Line Four Corners/Geneva Stop Opens!

It was a 20 year fight and it's not over yet.  But commuter rail trains stopped in Four Corners for the first time in over 50 years.

Mayor Menino and Governor Patrick join Mela Bush and other residents celebrating the opening of the Four Corners/Geneva Fairmount line stop. 

 

T Riders' Union (TRU) and ACE

The T Riders' Union (TRU), a program of ACE (Alternative for Community and Environment), organizes public transit riders to build a unified voice and movement for better public transportation in Greater Boston, Together, we develop and implement strategies to improve the quality of public transit. Our focus is on transit dependent communities – neighborhoods that are predominantly people of color and/or lower-income, where residents are likely to not own cars and therefore depend on public transit to get to work, school, recreation, and shopping.
