GREENBUSH LINE WITHOUT THE NORTH/SOUTH RAIL LINK:
SOUTH STATION WILL EXCEED CAPACITY, SERVICE WILL SUFFER

Boston, MA—The MBTA's recently announced plan to move forward with the Greenbush Line to finally reconnect portions of the south shore to the regional rail system and will reduce dangerous air pollutants from our skies. The Club is, however, questioning how Greenbush will fit, along with eight other lines, into an already overcrowded South Station and is calling on the state to get serious about connecting North and South Stations with a one-mile train tunnel which will reduce capacity problems at North and South Stations.
