Needham Center is the penultimate MBTA Commuter Rail station serving the Needham Line. It was originally built in 1870 (although some sources claim it was built in 1887), and was much larger than it is today. Needham Center Station was built on a line that originally ran between Medfield Junction and what is today Newton Highlands station on the "D" Branch of the MBTA Green Line.

Daily inbound boardings: 380 (2009)
