Lincoln Station is a passenger rail station on the MBTA Commuter Rail Fitchburg Line, located on Lincoln Road. There has been continuous commuter service to Lincoln since the station stop was established before 1850. A station building formerly stood on the outbound side.
The MBTA Team is working with the MBTA as well as the local legislators on making improvements at Lincoln Station. The Town has been awarded funding of $500,000 for the planning and design of the commuter rail facilities at Lincoln Station, however funding has not been released by the State.
Desired improvements might include ADA improvements, a raised platform to allow entry without stairs, provision of pedestrian shelters and seating, and relocation of the inbound stop to the westerly side of Lincoln Road so that both the inbound and outbound stops are on the same side of the road. Although it is questionable if the state will ever release these funds, the MBTA team will continue to work with the MBTA and explore other funding opportunities.
