Welcome to Train Time, a podcast from the Train Campaign, working to connect cities and rural areas because we’re convinced that passenger rail as the essential framework for efficient, sustainable transportation in the 21st century. Train Time is hosted by Karen Christensen, founder and president of the Train Campaign. Our guest this week is Massachusetts Senator Eric Lesser, who worked as a aide during the Obama administration and was elected to the senate in 2014. He represents his hometown Longmeadow and neighboring communities in the Greater-Springfield area, and is known for his advocacy of passenger rail service to western Massachusetts. In this podcast he explains how the current East-West Rail Study came to be, what its goals are, and what his vision is for connecting the Commonwealth. Click the link below to listen.
