Poll Finds Strong Support In Massachusetts For East-West Rail

An Amtrak train arrives at the downtown Holyoke, MA rail platform

A new poll finds there is overwhelming support in Massachusetts for a high-speed rail passenger rail line between Springfield and Boston.

The much-talked about, but never formally studied, east-west rail project is supported by 74 percent of the people who responded to questions from the Western New England University Polling Institute. 

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with polling institute director and professor of political science Tim Vercellotti.
