Discussion have begun in regards to a public, private partnership aimed to reduce emissions in the City of Woburn. Several large employers in the city have many employees who could commute to work by train if they had affordable and convenient transportation from the Anderson train stop to their place of employment. This change would positively impact the level emissions from commuters as well as traffic congestion on our roadways. Grants are available to cities for programs designed to do just this and combined with funds from employers Woburn could become a cleaner and quieter place to live.
