WESTBOROUGH – The town’s new shuttle service is increasing in ridership, according to an official from the Central Mass. Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC).
Jonathan Church, a project manager with CMRPC, provided an update on the shuttle service to the Economic Development Committee (EDC) during its Oct. 7 meeting.
The shuttle, provided by the Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA), has been operating two routes since it kicked off service in December 2012. A commuter route runs from the Westborough MBTA station on Smith Valve Parkway to several office parks on Route 9 and then back again to the station in late afternoon. Shuttle pickup and dropoff times are coordinated with trains from Boston and Worcester.
Following the morning commute, the shuttle makes runs up and down East and West Main streets from approximately 8:35 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Daytime stops include the Westborough Senior Center, Bay State Commons, Westborough Public Library, Forbes Municipal Building, and Westborough High School. Residents may also “flag” down the shuttles and ask the driver to drop them off at different places along the main routes.
