Funding would provide for a shuttle program for Hudson
BOSTON—Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton) fought to pass $50,000 in the budget to create a shuttle program for the Town of Hudson. The funding will provide van service by the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority (MWRTA) to Hudson, which falls under the coverage of the MWRTA but currently receives no public transportation services.
“By extending services to Hudson, many underserved populations will have access to public transportation in MetroWest for the first time, including reverse and local commuters and low-income families,” said Senator Eldridge. “This service will ensure that Hudson has access to MBTA commuter rail stations, shopping centers, and medical centers.”
The Senate and House budget now goes to Conference Committee to resolve the differences between both versions.
