Starting on September 16, 2019, the City of Marlborough will be launching a free daily shuttle bus service that will take commuters and residents to and from the MBTA Southborough commuter rail station. The 12-passenger handicap-accessible van will run Monday to Friday, 5:30am – 7:30pm, making a total of six daily trips and stopping at Marlborough Hills and the Apex Center of New England. There will be a designated parking area for shuttle bus passengers at Marlborough Hills. Riders must register online to ride the bus and show proof of residence (i.e. drivers license, utility bill) when boarding at Marlborough Hills.
This new shuttle service will provide free public transportation to commuters who live in Boston or Worcester and work in Marlborough, and city residents who work in Boston or Worcester and wish to take the train from Southborough. Local senior citizens, who need transportation to and from various appointments during the day, will also be able to use the shuttle bus during the hours of 9:30am – 3:30pm through the Marlborough Council on Aging.
