MassLive reports that the MBTA has published a new schedule for the Worcester line (H/T Emily Norton) which passes through Newton along the pike.   The schedule has been expanded now that the MBTA has taken ownership of the rail from CSX.  I haven’t had time to study it much to figure out exactly where the new service goes.  Does it benefit Newton much?  MetroWest?  A little of both?  It’s not rapid transit, but maybe it will take a few more cars off the roads.  One change is more frequent service to the upgraded Yawkey station which services the Longwood medical area.  That could open up new commute possibilities from Newton and elsewhere.
