MBTA to re-open Greenbush Line next month

On Oct. 31, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) plans to re-open the long-awaited Greenbush line, according to an article posted recently on MBTA’s Web site. About 4,800 riders a day will travel on the restored line, says MBTA General Manager Daniel Grabauskas.

The 18-mile, seven-station Greenbush Branch runs through the cities of Braintree, Weymouth, Hingham, Cohasset and Scituate. Service on the line was terminated in 1959, when the Southeast Expressway opened.
