BOSTON — Former state transportation chief Richard Davey believes extending commuter rail service to the South Coast and fixing the beleaguered Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) system without raising new taxes is a "tall order," according to a Taunton Daily Gazette report.

The South Coast Rail project is an estimated $2.2 billion commuter rail extension that would stretch from Boston to Taunton, Fall River and New Bedford.
