Holyoke Passenger Station Site Location Assess

The return of passenger rail service to Holyoke will be an important component of Holyoke's downtown resurgence. The Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) will open its new Intermodal Transportation Center (a joint venture with Peter Pan) at Veteran's Park this summer; the development of the High Performance Computing Center is proceeding at Open Square; and the Holyoke Canal Walk and Bicycle Path area already offering an improved downtown environment. Therefore, the identification of a recommended site for the future passenger rail station in Holyoke is needed to support this ongoing municipal revitalization and assure the overall success of the Knowledge Corridor project in the region. This study will focus on the analysis of two locations and their potential to serve the passenger demand and service scenarios described in the 2009 feasibility study. The location and accessibility of other transportation assets, resources, and trip generators in the downtown area shall be considered in the analysis of each location.
