MassDOT and the MBTA has announced a new “real-time” travel information collaborative initiative designed to provide I-93 Southbound commuters information about a nearby commuter rail option on the Lowell Line.
A VMS message board positioned just after the I-93 Concord Street Exit (Exit 39) will display the time of the next scheduled train departing from the Anderson-Woburn Regional Transportation Center on the Lowell Line during the morning commute. The message will be displayed until several minutes before the next departure to allow customers enough time to exit I-93 and drive safely to the rail station.
The I-93 VMS message board will display departure times from Anderson/Woburn on the Lowell line Monday through Friday from the first train leaving the station at 5:55am through the 11:35 am train. The message will be displayed until several minutes before each departure, then show the departure time of the following train. Any departure with a delay of greater than 10 minutes will automatically not be displayed.
The Anderson/Woburn station parking lot charges $4 daily. The Anderson/Woburn stop is in Commuter Rail Zone 2, with a one-way trip cost to Boston North Station of $4.75. The scheduled trip time is 27 minutes to North Station. The 8:05 train with fewer stops is 21 minutes. Visit http://www.mbta.com to learn more about fares and schedules.
