Envisioning a bus system linking Globe West towns

FRAMINGHAM

Want to know more about the possibility of creating a regional transportation authority for the western suburbs?

Framingham Selectman John Stasik will discuss what a new RTA would mean for Framingham and Metrowest at a presentation tonight sponsored by the Framingham League of Women Voters.

The Framingham Board of Selectmen voted last month to incorporate a new RTA to take the place of the existing LIFT bus system. While Framingham would be the only member initially, the town is encouraging other communities to join in. Natick, Milford, Marlborough and Ashland have discussed joining a new authority.

The discussion is at 7:30 tonight at the library in The Oaks Building, which is located within Summerville at Farm Pond. Call (508) 788-5253 for more information.
