COURTYARD BY MARRIOTT MARLBOROUGH
175 Felton St., Marlborough, MA 01752
1) MBTA Commuter Rail outbound from Boston on the Worcester Line on both Saturday and Sunday
To arrive on time for the conference, there is a train which leaves South Station at 6:40am and makes all station stops between Boston and Worcester. This train arrives at the MBTA Westborough Station at 7:49am. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements in advance for transportation between MBTA Westborough Station and the Marriott Hotel for this train. 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 Westborough at 4:47pm and arrives at Boston at 6:00pm. Again we will arrange transportation to the station for this train.
Commuter Rail schedules change frequently. Check the MBTA site for exact times at www.mbta.com.
2) Metrowest Regional Transit Authority provides local bus service between their hub in Framingham (near the Commuter Rail Station) and Marlborough (www.mwrta.com)
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.
4) Uber and Lyft
Consider using Uber or Lyft for transportation to and from the MBTA Westborough Station and the Courtyard Marriott is your travel plans are not compatible with the other options.
