Holyoke Marks Groundbreaking of Passenger Rail Platform Text Size

Yesterday, Governor Patrick joined Mayor Morse, Representative Vega, Senator Humason, former Congressman Olver, Congressman Neal, and other local leaders at the groundbreaking of the new $3.2 million passenger rail platform for the return of train service. The officials boarded the train and rode to other stops in Northampton and Greenfield. It’s been 30 years since the City of Holyoke has had passenger train service, and this investment will help provide a boost to downtown Holyoke and the region Knowledge Corridor. The City hopes that the platform will be partially available to Holyokers to use by April.
