1) MBTA Commuter Rail outbound from Boston on the Worcester Line on both Saturday and Sunday
Train leaves South Station at 6:40am and makes all station stops between Boston and Westborough. Train arrives Westborough Station at 7:50am. We will make arrangements for transportation between Westborough Station and the Marriott Hotel. We will need notice that you are using this option. We will be sending out an email to all registrants closer to the conference so that you can tell us if you are using this route. Be aware that Saturday trains commonly only open the car at the front of the train for passengers. On the return trip, train leaves Southborough at 4:55pm and arrives at Boston at 6:00pm. Again we will arrange transportation to the station.

2) Metrowest Regional Transit Authority provides local bus service between their hub in Framingham (near the Commuter Rail Station) and Marlborough (
The Marlborough service is on Route 7. The stop would be Route 20 and Felton Street. Service on Saturday is less frequent than on weekdays so this is not as convenient as the Commuter Rail. However, if you anticipate coming out on Friday and spending the night, it is a good option.

3) Peter Pan Bus Lines runs a weekday commuter bus from Marlborough to Boston
The bus arrives in the early evening in Marlborough at the corner of Granger Blvd and Newton Streets. It is a short walk to pick up the Route 7 MWRTA bus to the hotel.
