The MBTA this week expanded round-trip service on the Worcester-to-Boston commuter rail line to 20 round trips each weekday. That was aided by the expansion of the line's Yawkey station, adjacent to Kenmore Square and Fenway Park, which added a second set of tracks, allowing for the expansion. The line serves about 13,000 riders daily and, as of December 2012, was the third-busiest commuter rail line in the system. Officials here hope the expansion of service on that line and improvements on the Fitchburg line, will help bring more people out to Central Massachusetts from Boston and the suburbs inside Interstate 495. But will it? That's the subject of this week's Flash Poll.
Will service expansion and improvements on the Worcester and Fitchburg commuter rail lines benefit Central Massachusetts businesses?
