The plan has the MBTA using the Middleborough/Lakeville Commuter Rail line while they continue preliminary engineering design and permitting on the Stoughton line.
“Our administration is committed to providing the South Coast with commuter rail service as expeditiously and efficiently as possible,” Governor Charlie Baker said in a release. “Pursuing the Middleborough/Lakeville early action service while advancing the Stoughton Electric final phase service will facilitate commuter rail service to the region years earlier.”

Warren recently sent a letter to Somerset Select Board member Holly McNamara in support of McNamara's plan to bring the Hyperloop -- a speedy system of travel for people and goods using pods, magnetic levitation propulsion and low-pressure tubes -- to the Northeast.

They could even swap the electrification requirement with other lines that are busier, or converting Needham to rabid-transit.
