People who bounce between Worcester and Boston will now be able to shoot between the two gateway cities in about an 90 minutes.
Today the MBTA launches a daily express train between the cities that will cut about 20 minutes from a normal trip.
The new inbound express leaves Worcester at 6:20 a.m., stops in Framingham at 7 a.m. and arrives at South Station at 7:43 a.m. after a stop at Back Bay.
The outbound express will leave South Station at 5:35 p.m., stop in Framingham at 6:13 p.m. and arrive in Worcester at 6:43 p.m.
A round trip between the cities costs $20, according to State Secretary of Transportation Richard Davey. The express trains will likely feature six cars and each car can hold roughly 175 passengers.
