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.
