MBTA
BOSTON — MBTA is expected to offer weekday commuter rail service between Boston and Foxboro, Mass., starting in late 2018. The service will be part of a year-long pilot program to connect downtown Boston with Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots professional American football team. The service is being paid for by a public-private partnership with the Kraft Group, which owns the stadium and the football team, and will be providing $200,000 for the new service.

MBTA only runs to Gillette Stadium on game days and during special events, but the new service would see trains running to Foxboro four times a day, the Boston Herald reports.

Public officials along the route will be briefed in the coming days with more details of the project.
