Imagine getting on a train to get to work in Boston or Taunton from New Bedford, or getting to the garden for a game from Fall River. No need to get on the highway! Save some gas! It could happen! Gov. Patrick today is on a mission to visit top environmental officials in Washington, D.C  “to convey a sense of urgency at the top level” of the state's commitment to the SouthCoast commuter rail project.

A project need to bring much needed jobs and business to the Southcoast area.  It's good to know the South Coast Rail project would provide a commuter link between Boston and New Bedford, Fall River and Taunton.
