DISCUSS: Does Stoneham Need A Second Bus Line?

A Reading resident has proposed a non-MBTA bus line that would serve communities such as Stoneham, Reading, North Reading and Wakefield. Does Stoneham need a new bus line? Tell us in the comments section below.

Reading resident Linda Greenlaw recently proposed a bus service to both the Reading Town Manager and Reading Board of Selectmen, with the goal of providing transportation to residents in Stoneham, Reading, North Reading and Wakefield. With that in mind, we'd like to know: Does Stoneham need a second bus line?

Stoneham has one bus line—the MBTA Bus 132 service—but we'd like to know if an additional bus line would be helpful to Stonehamites.

Let us know your thoughts by posting a comment in the comments section below.

I'm all for the extensions and additions to bus services as long as the patrons pay the total costs. Don't raise my taxes local or state to provide a service I do not use.

Only if you have to pay the total cost of your road use. And no, gas and excise taxes do not cover that.

No.
