mart-busThe Montachusett Regional Transit Authority (MART) and local Transportation Management Association, CrossTown Connect, are pleased to announce MART’s newest transportation service, the Littleton-Westford Commuter Rail Shuttle.

Beginning on June 4th, 2018, this shuttle will connect the Littleton Commuter Rail station with IBM/Littleton Common and businesses in Tech Parks East and West in Westford, making it possible for the first time to commute to and from these locations using public transportation.  Residents going to Littleton Station will be able to board at these stops, including at dedicated park-and-ride parking spaces at Juniper Networks in Tech Park West.

“We are pleased that residents of the state will have these additional transportation options to get to where they need to go,” said Massachusetts Rail and Transit Administrator Astrid Glynn.  “We would like to thank the towns of working collaboratively with the private sector and community members for making this service possible.”

The shuttle service is made possible by a collaborative effort including the Towns of Littleton and Westford, MART, private business partners, CrossTown Connect, MassDevelopment, MassDOT, and the Montachusett Regional Planning Commission with support from the 495/MetroWest Partnership.

Shuttles will originate from a new MART outpost on MassDevelopment property in Devens, which will help to lower the cost of the service by housing the vehicles closer to their service area.

Information about the service is available by visiting the MART website.
