Get in[edit]

By Car[edit]

Westborough is most easily reached by car using MA Route 9. Route 9 connects Westborough directly to Worcester to the west and Boston to the east. Travelers coming from north or south will most likely use I-495 exit 23, which connects to Route 9.

By Train[edit]

MBTA Commuter rail stops at Westborough Station, which is a couple of miles from the village. Unless you have a friend picking you up at the station, be prepared to walk.

Get around[edit]

Westborough village is small enough to be navigated on foot, however you will need a car to reach points outside the village. Traffic on Route 9 can be extremely heavy during rush hour and there are many aggressive drivers.
