Ipswich is a passenger rail station on MBTA Commuter Rail's Newburyport/Rockport Line, located in downtown Ipswich, Massachusetts. In recent years, parking in the area has been expanded to accommodate the influx of people. This includes the demolition of the old Ipswich Lanes candlepin bowling alley one block east of the station, to make way for a new parking garage. The station is handicapped accessible, with a mini-high platform on the northern end of the platform.
Ipswich was the terminus of the line from April 1976, when the lone round trip to Newburyport was cut, until full service was restored on October 26, 1998. Just south of the end of the platform are two auxiliary tracks that were used to store trains during that time.
CATA provides weekend service during the summer on its Purple Line Ipswich - Essex - Crane Beach shuttle.
