Yes, gas prices are no longer $4.00 a gallon, but alternative energy options and increasing public transportation are no less important. On Tuesday, February 3rd there will be a meeting regarding the Green Line extension of the MBTA. At this meeting the Executive Office of Transportation will present its "preferred alternative" for the terminus of the Green Line - either at College Ave. or Route 16 (the Mystic Valley Parkway).
The meeting is from 4-6 PM at St. Clement's Parish Hall, 579 Boston Ave., Medford. The Medford Green Line Neighborhood Alliance has all of the information and a petition you can sign to support bringing the Green Line to Route 16, near the borders of Medford, Arlington and Somerville so that more people can walk to public transportation.
