Commuter Rail Service to Boston Doing Fine

Commuter rail service to and from Boston is showing no ill–effects a day after the bombings.

We spent a couple of hours at the South Attleboro train station Tuesday.

Commuter rail service to and from Providence and Boston was unfazed, as was Amtrak service.

The parking lot in South Attleboro was full, meaning lots of people who commute to Boston for work, had few concerns that were serious enough to keep them away.

People we spoke with did say they would be extra cautious upon arrival in Boston, but overall they aren't too concerned.

Commuter Shawn DaRosa from Pawtucket said, "My concern would be in a heavily populated area, you just don't know what's going to happen. That, it seems. is what they would want to target."

Train rider Troy Boyett said, "No, I really don't. I really don't. I feel okay, I feel okay.

I just feel a little bit sad about what happened."

Commuter rail stations are all open, but once you get to Boston there are some things to be aware of.

The Copley station on the T's green line is closed until further notice, so you'll have to make some alternative travel plans there.
