In 2018, FRCOG Staff evaluated the existing park and ride facilities in Franklin County to determine how well they are being utilized. In addition, FRCOG Staff conducted surveys of the park and ride facility users to better understand where they were coming from and how they were using the lots. The study shows that the use of the Whately and Sunderland park and ride lots continue to increase and that many users of the Sunderland lot are parking there to access public transit.
In 2021, FRCOG Staff examined feasible locations in the Eastern portion of Franklin County for additional park and ride facilities. The report recommends several locations in the Town of Erving and Orange in order to fill this gap in facilities.
