Situated at the junction of Interstates 93 & 95 (one of the most frequently traveled interchanges on the East Coast), and along Route 3 leading to New Hampshire, almost all communities in the North Suburban region have direct immediate access to major highways. With the addition of a new interchange serving Woburn off Interstate 93, and the ongoing widening of Route 3, transportation improvements are being actively sought and planned to help ease traffic congestion in the region. Being only 15 miles to Boston, 40 miles to Providence, and 220 miles to New York City, the area enjoys unprecedented access to major urban areas.
Airport access and availability is unparalleled, with Logan International Airport only 10 miles from the region, Hanscom Field (a full-service general aviation and limited commuter airline regional facility) in the middle of the region in Bedford, and the full-service Manchester, NH Airport 40 minutes to the north on Interstate 93.
Rail access to the region is primarily found on the Mass Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) Lowell Commuter rail line, which enjoys a new station at the Anderson Regional Transportation Center (RTC) in Woburn. There are more than 1,000 commuter parking spaces at this facility. Additional rail service northward to Manchester, New Hampshire’s full-service airport is planned.
The region is ably served by several MBTA bus routes into Boston and many smaller shuttles, including Logan Express, which leaves from Anderson RTC in Woburn daily.
