Westborough – Officials from the Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA) held a meeting at the Doubletree Hotel Feb. 19 with local business leaders to discuss a new shuttle service that transports commuters to several office parks to and from the Westborough MBTA commuter rail station.
Steve O’Neil, WRTA’s administrator, said since the kickoff Dec. 2, the number of riders had started slowly, but was anticipated to grow once the weather improved and more people became aware of the service.
The 12-passenger shuttle’s runs from the commuter station are timed to coincide as close as possible to several incoming trains from Boston and Worcester, he said. Commuters are then picked up at different times in the afternoon to return to the station. The MBTA is in the process of updating its schedules, O’Neil added. Once that is complete, additional pick up and drop off times will be added.
