The MBTA and the Institute for Human Centered Design seek Newton seniors and people with disabilities to participate in site visits and workshops concerning the existing Newtonville, West Newton, and Auburndale Commuter Rail Stations, and replacement stations now being planned.
We want to hear your ideas about how the new stations can best be designed to meet your needs.
You will receive an Amazon gift card in exchange for your participation.
