MBTA, local transit authority to upgrade Leominister station


Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Montachusett Regional Transit Authority (MART) plan soon to begin improving the North Leominster commuter-rail station.



The $3 million project includes building 150 parking spaces, two 45-foot-long, Americans with Disabilities Act-complying elevated platforms, a pedestrian crossing and canopies on each side of the track. MART would operate and manage the parking facility.



The project will be funded through an interagency agreement between MBTA and MART, which obtained federal funding for the station. MBTA also plans to pay $950,000 to build a new station and parking facilities.



Located on MBTA’s Fitchburg line, the North Leominister station serves 22 trains daily.
