    Here is what you need to know:

    • Fairmount Line Frequency Increase:
      • MBTA will increase the frequency of Fairmount Line trains to every 30 minutes on weekdays and weekends. The Readville lower platform will also reopen to riders, offering more transfer options for the Franklin, Foxboro, Providence, Stoughton, and Fairmount Lines. 
    • Reintroduction of Worcester Express Train:
      • MBTA will reintroduce a weekday morning express train from Worcester, arriving at South Station in downtown Boston at 8:45 AM. The trip will also include stops at Framingham and Lansdowne. 
    • Resumed Service at South Attleboro Station:
      • MBTA will resume train service to and from South Attleboro with three morning inbound and three evening outbound trips. Service was suspended in 2021.
    • 2024 CapeFLYER Service:
      • The popular CapeFLYER, offering round-trip service between Boston and Cape Cod, will return for the season on Memorial Day weekend. The service runs on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until Labor Day with some additional service during holiday weekends.
    • Other Commuter Rail Service Updates:
      • Various schedule adjustments and trip time reductions will be implemented on the Newburyport/Rockport, Lowell, Fitchburg, Haverhill, Franklin, and Providence Lines to improve performance, accommodate Amtrak schedule changes, and align with other service improvements.
