Abstract

The goal of this project was to develop a mitigation agreement for use by Massachusetts towns impacted by passenger rail expansion projects. This was accomplished by analyzing existing mitigation agreements within the Commonwealth, as well as studying case studies regarding commuter rail layover stations. Interviews were also conducted between town representatives from passenger rail affected towns. The resulting agreement can be used between host communities and either the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA), AMTRAK or other passenger rail service providers.
