MBTA to Expand Service for MetroWest Community on Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail Line

October 7, 2013


Great news for MetroWest: The MBTA plans to expand service on the Framingham/Worcester Commuter Rail Line to better serve residents, communities, employers and employees in the MetroWest region. On Wednesday, October 2nd, the 495/MetroWest Partnership hosted a meeting with Charles Planck, Assistant General Manager of Policy Performance and Strategy, and Acting Chief of Staff at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) to discuss these proposed changes. The improvements to the Framingham/Worcester line include schedule changes, as well as upgrades to tracks, stations, coaches and locomotives. The MBTA is still accepting comments and recommendations from commuters and stakeholders on the new schedule, including changes to departure times, recommended express stops and potential weekend schedules.

This is a wonderful opportunity to share your thoughts and recommendations on how the Commuter Rail can best serve you and your families! You can view the slides from last week’s meeting, and review the MBTA’s letter soliciting comments. Suggestions are welcome and should be emailed to
