Destination Station

Commuter Rail employees know our system best, so we started “Destination Station”- the official Commuter Rail Staff Picks program.

Since we are entering peak fall foliage in Massachusetts we asked, “which spot on the network has the best views for fall foliage?”

The answer:

📍 Line: Fitchburg 🚆Stations: Lincoln, Concord, West Concord, and Wachusett

The Fitchburg line runs through areas of Massachusetts that are a leaf peepers’ dream. Take a trip out to Lincoln, Concord, West Concord, Littleton, or all the way to Wachusett to see all the fall colors.

If you’re traveling on the weekend, hop on/hop off at several stations on the line with $10 weekend tickets. Get unlimited both Sat. + Sun. Plus, kids 11 and under always ride free.

What other spots got votes for the best views for foliage from the train?

📍 Line: Newburyport/Rockport 🚆Station: Manchester

“Right next to a small shopping center offers coffee, a bank, a pharmacy…right in the center of the high street. Everything is within walking distance from [the Manchester Commuter Rail Station]. Beautiful ocean view and rustic style restaurants – [it’s] a peaceful place.” – Commuter Rail Assistant Conductor

📍 Line: Kingston 🚆Stations: Between South Weymouth and Kingston

📍 Line: Providence/Stoughton 🚆Stations: Between Wickford Junction and Providence
