With great flourish, pomp and circumstance the Woodbridge VRE pedestrian overpass opened almost 18 months ago. Then it sat with the elevvator doors locked and no one could access the overpass.
Then in December the bulldozers start to work on the Route 1 side of the tracks. Starting on Monday January 30, 2012 the new "Kiss and Ride" drop off and bus stop will now be open. For commuters this means you no longer have to the round about route to drop off passengers in the front of the station and get stuck at the traffic lights.
For anyone who takes any of the commuter buses from the Woodbridge VRE station you will now be able to catch your bus on Route 1 and Greyhound plans to also use this new stop fo passengers as well.
It may take a little bit of getting used to but this will save traffic coming in and out of Belmont Bay. This project is just the start of what is planned along this section of the Route 1 corridor. The Woodbridge VRE station is the most heavily used station in the area.
