MBTA New Locomotive, North Station, April 16, 2014The MBTA has released new commuter rail schedules that will go into effect on the Newburyport/Rockport, Haverhill, Lowell, and Fitchburg Lines in December.

With a goal of creating reliable and resilient Commuter Rail schedules, the MBTA launched a thorough analysis of the schedules on every line. The revised schedules are designed to improve the passenger experience through consistent arrival and departure times and additional express services.

No major changes have been made to the MBTA Commuter Rail schedules for decades, despite ridership changes and infrastructure improvements. Through this initiative, the MBTA developed schedules using computer-based rail simulations, field testing, and improved operations policies.

Service reliability is of paramount importance to customers and is a critical factor in the MBTA’s effort to attract more riders to the Commuter Rail System. By effectively managing existing train sets to benefit the greatest number of customers, the MBTA has developed better and more realistic schedules upon which daily commuters can rely.

Schedules for each line can be found online.
