Re: Cape Flyer

Was told by someone from CCRTA that they plan
to push for extension of service until Columbus Day in 2020..
They only ran it the first year when The Flyer was still relatively unknown,
so now they gotten established I think it might do fairly well

Re: AllEarth Rail / Vermont Commuter Rail

Don't wanna' go off topic.but A drawback with RDC's on Northern Branch might be that would make it 3 ride trip into Manhattan,Gotta' wonder how much that would appeal to the daily commuter....and with The Susquehanna personally I think the only reactivation that would make any sense would be from de...

Re: Cape Flyer

I still don't get why they don't stop at West Barnstable... Why not make it that much easier for patrons coming & going from the northside to patronize The Flyer, instead of having to go all the way into downtown Hyannis..?? Doesn't matter to me,as I live in Dennisport and once I get off even with a...

Re: Giulietti: Bar Cars Not Likely

It'd been there since at least the 1930's and had a Old Hoboken ambience, which at that point was still Old Hoboken They ...

Re: Cape Flyer

What should be considered is stopping at either Sandwich or preferably West Barnstable... West Barnstable in particular is perfectly situated to serve the Northside & 6A... It's no fun in the summertime dealing with either Willow Street or 132 to get to the HTC,and I'm sure that discourages quite a ...
