Acton’s MinuteVan Rail Shuttle has new rates and parking options for commuters this year. In addition to providing a shuttle from an off-site parking lot behind the West Acton Fire Station to the commuter rail station, the service will now take passengers to and from a parking lot at Mount Calvary Church on Massachusetts Avenue. The second lot will have 21 spaces. The cost of an annual parking sticker-bus pass combination is $250 for all commuters, including nonresidents. The rate for a monthly parking spot, including shuttle access, has been reduced from $50 per month to $40 per month. Day passes that include parking and the shuttle remain at $3.
