FRAMINGHAM – The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Keolis Commuter Services, the operator of the Commuter Rail, announced today, May 9, new spring train schedules which will take effect May 22.
All trains running now will continue to provide service, but the arrival or departure times for several routes were modified slightly.
And a new stop at Boston Landing in Brighton has been added to the Framingham/Worcester line.
As a result of this additional stop, arrivals and departure times along the line were adjusted, but there is still non-stop train service between Worcester and Boston each weekday.
The “HeartToHub’”inbound train departs from Worcester at 8 a.m. (five minutes earlier than the current schedule) while the outbound train leaves South Station at 7:35 p.m. daily.
“We regularly provide to the MBTA passenger feedback and network analysis collected by the transit professionals at every level of our organization,” said David Scorey, general manager and CEO, Keolis Commuter Services, said in a statement. “This information is used to improve service in many ways and to identify opportunities for resource investment. In this case, we’ve been able to make adjustments to the schedule to further improve the passenger experience.”
