MBTA to Westford Lowell Line

Westford is a big town that is growing very fast, it has the infrastructure, and just needs a station to be built. It has a low amount of transit options for the size of the town.

Keep in mind that building a station or otherwise expanding service isn't going to happen overnight.  Most new commuter rail stations are owned by the municipality they serve and if a town is unwilling to spend their own money to get a station built then it probably won't happen.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul

Not familiar with this particular  situation.  However any extension of any line requires station work or a new one.  Then new layover facilities including track, HEP ground support, engine servicing, cleaning, and so forth.
