Keolis: Framingham/Worcester Line On Time 90%; New Stops at Boston Landing Station

FRAMINGHAM – Keolis Commuter Services said it has turned around one of the “lowest-performing” lines the Framingham/Worcester one “into one of the best performers, regularly above 90 percent” on time.

Keolis also announced the Framingham/Worcester line will see four trains making new stops, starting Monday, May 21.

“Additional trains will stop at Boston Landing Station on the Framingham/Worcester line, responding to increased ridership since the station opened one year ago,” asid Keolis in a media release.

“As part of the build-out for this new station, Keolis and MBTA teams installed a new switch and added double track to further improve service and in preparation for increased service,” said Keolis, in that press release.

Keolis said it will be making adjustments to the commuter rail routes with spring here, and summer on its way.

These changes are meant to use new or improved rail infrastructure, eliminate train conflicts and minimize traffic that can lead to delays, aid Keolis.

“Whether through investments made by the MBTA and Keolis or through minor adjustments to the schedule, we’re always seeking to improve the passenger experience and reliability on commuter rail,” said David Scorey, Keolis general manager and CEO, in the release. “Many passengers won’t notice this schedule change, but we encourage all riders to check schedules before May 21.”
