Location & Transportation


The Assabet Valley Region is situated in Central Eastern Massachusetts, within the greater Boston metropolitan area. The Assabet River flows through the area, rising in Westborough and traveling 31 miles northeast to end in Concord, where it merges with the Sudbury River at Egg Rock to create the Concord River. Beyond the beautiful backdrop of the region, the area’s location has made commuting quick and efficient with an established road infrastructure, plus easy access to rail and air travel.

Interstate 495 traverses through the center of the area, offering links to Interstates 90 and 290. Additionally, a number of state highways and U.S. highway routes wind in and around Assabet Valley connecting this area to a host of regional destinations.

Commuter rail lines through the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) are accessible via the Framingham/Worcester Line, which begins at Worcester’s Union Station and ends at South Station in Boston. Commuter rails are available in Acton and Southborough as well. Furthermore, Worcester and Framingham host Amtrak rail services.

General aviation services, especially for the small plane owners, can be found at both Minute Man Air Field in Stow and Marlboro Airport in Marlborough, while commercial services to a variety of regional terminuses are accessed at Hanscom Field in Bedford and Worcester Regional Airport. However, the majority of residents utilize larger regional airports such as Logan Airport in Boston (45 minutes), TF Green Airport outside of Providence, RI (75 minutes) and the Manchester, NH airport (75 minutes).
