Commuter Rail Service in Canton MA
Canton MA is home to two different commuter rail stations, Canton Center located in the "downtown" section of Canton and Canton Junction, which is located just a little bit outside of the center. The nice thing about having the two different stops is that there are two different commuter rail lines that service the town, increasing your commuting options.
The Stoughton line, runs from next door neighbor Stoughton, MA and makes stops both at Canton Center and Canton Junction, ending in Boston with stops at both Back Bay Station and South Station. The Providence line, runs from Providence, RI and only stops at Canton Junction. It also ends in Boston at both Back Bay and South Station. With both lines running through the "Junction" there are a variety of trains to catch to take you right into Boston.
The earliest train makes a stop just before 6:00 a.m. and the last train home from Boston leaves just before midnight. During the morning and afternoon commuter rush hours, the trains run pretty frequently. During mid-day and later evening, while there are not as many trains, there are certainly many options. The train ride from Canton to Boston is approximately 20 minutes, making for a relatively painless commute to Boston.
The trains also run on the weekends. So, for those who enjoy all that the city has to offer on the weekends (museums, music, sports nightlife - the choices are endless!), it is quite easy to get into Boston from Canton MA. Kids seem to really enjoy taking the train making a family outing into Boston a fun adventure for all. You can find the complete Providence/Stoughton line train schedule online.
Canton MA offers the benefits of living in a small town together with easy access to all that Boston has to offer.
