Express train from Worcester to Boston? Not so fast

Train 516 leaves Union Station at noon on the MBTA commuter rail’s Framingham/Worcester line Tuesday. This train stops at every station on the line and arrives at South Station at 1:38 pm.

WORCESTER — The trip to and from Boston for commuters will take longer soon, with the latest schedule changes on the Worcester/Framingham commuter rail line to include more stops.

Effective Monday, the Massachusetts Bay Transportaton Authority’s Heart to Hub express train will have added stops between Worcester and West Natick, adding to the trip time.

The new schedule also changes morning and evening departure times from Union Station and South Station.

“I looked at the schedule this morning and I was like, ‘What the heck’,” said Holden resident Steven Hall, who takes the commuter rail to Boston for work. “I’m definitely not happy about it. It just adds time to my commute both ways.”
