Lowell is a rail station on the MBTA Commuter Rail system in Lowell, Massachusetts. The station forms part of the Charles A. Gallagher Transit Terminal, which also incorporates the Robert B. Kennedy Bus Transfer Center.


Terminal and services

Lowell station is located at the Charles A. Gallagher Transit Terminal (or Gallagher Terminal), an intermodal transit center, at 101 Thorndike Street(MA 3A) at the edge of Downtown Lowell. The station is the northern terminus of the MBTA Lowell Line providing train service to and from Boston. The Kennedy Bus Transfer Center is also located at the terminal for local and long bus service.

The Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA) operates local bus service based at the Kennedy Center.[2] Peter Pan Bus Lines and Vermont Transit Lines provide intercity bus service connecting through Boston, Worcester, Concord, New Hampshire, and Hartford, Connecticut.[3][4]

The lobby at Gallagher Terminal includes a waiting area, a ticket counter for trains and intercity buses,[5], a Dunkin' Donuts, and rest rooms.

Passengers access the train platform from the lobby by way of a bridge over the tracks.



The Charles A. Gallagher Transit Terminal opened in 1983.[1] Previously, this area had held a depot for the Boston and Lowell Railroad. To the east, Lowell had also been the location of a former Lowell and Andover Railroad, built by the Boston and Maine Railroad, station on Central and Green Streets known as Central Street Station, which is no longer in use.[6] In 2005, the Robert B. Kennedy Bus Transfer Center opened at the Gallagher Terminal as a new hub for all LRTA bus routes.[2]
