Kingston / Route 3 (also known as Kingston) is a passenger rail station on MBTA Commuter Rail's Plymouth/Kingston Line.[1] it is located at 194 Marion Drive in Kingston, Massachusetts, which is west of Independence Mall Shopping Center off of Exit 8 on Massachusetts Route 3, hence the dual name.

Kingston station was built in 1997 as a replacement for the former Old Colony Railroad station that was located further north on Summer Street (MA 3A),[2]

Bus connections[edit]

The MBTA runs no buses on any of the stations of the Kingston/Plymouth branch of the Old Colony Line. However, the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) runs two buses from the station. The Plymouth Area Link[3] provides local service to downtown Plymouth, and connects to other GATRA routes connecting with coastal Plymouth. The so-called "SAIL" route (Seaside Area Inter-Link) connects the station with Kingston, Duxbury, Marshfield and Pembroke.[4]
