Terminus

Rowley is the penultimate passenger rail station along the Newburyport Branch of MBTA Commuter Rail's Newburyport/Rockport Line.[1] The official address is given by MBTA as 70 Railroad Avenue, although it is actually located north of Railroad Avenue between Depot Way and Oyster Pond Road. Parking is available on the north side of Railroad Avenue between Depot Way and the railroad tracks.

The station opened on October 26, 1998, as part of a restoration of service on the Newburyport/Rockport Line from Ipswich to Newburyport.[2] As with Newburyport, the station was built with a full-length high-level platform which allows level boarding for all cars of even the longest MBTA trains.
