Rail, Transit, Transportation
The feasibility of commuter rail service has been proposed for study on three routes serving Burlington and neighboring communities: 1. Montpelier Junction/Essex Junction/Burlington, 2. St. Albans/Essex Junction/Burlington, and 3. Middlebury/Burlington/Essex Junction. Determination of proposed commuter rail service feasibility is a four step process, incorporating the following successive assessments: Is the proposed service physically and operationally feasible? What patronage might the service attract? What would the service cost? Is the service sufficiently attractive to warrant the expenditure of public funds from a cost-effectiveness standpoint or on the basis of community goals and objectives?
