Eliot is a light rail station on the MBTA Green Line "D" Branch located just north of Route 9 (Boylston Street) between the Newton Highlands and Newton Upper Falls villages of Newton, Massachusetts. The station has a parking lot at the end of Lincoln Street, a pedestrian entrance from Meredith Street, and pedestrian entrances from both sides of Route 9. A footbridge, built in 1977, crosses Route 9 adjacent to the railroad bridge.

Bus connections[edit]

One MBTA Bus route, the 59 Needham Junction - Watertown Square via Newtonville, stops two blocks to the east at Woodward Street.[3] Although the connection is announced on both modes, Newton Highlands one stop to the east offers a closer connection between the two services.
