About MetroWest Regional Transit Authority
The MetroWest Regional Transit Authority was formed in 2006 by the state legislature to help serve the public transportation needs of the 32-town corridor known as the I-495/MetroWest corridor. Framingham Intermodal was the result of a lease agreement with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) in October of 2016, which transferred management of the Framingham Commuter Rail Station to the MWRTA. The MWRTA is continuously looking to add new transit connections and customer amenities to Framingham Intermodal.
