Ipswich is a commuter rail station on the MBTA Commuter Rail Newburyport/Rockport Line, located in downtown Ipswich, Massachusetts. 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 remaining round trip to Newburyport was cut, until full service was restored on October 26, 1998.[2] Just south of the end of the platform are two auxiliary tracks that were used to store trains during that time.

Connecting service[edit]

CATA provides weekend service during the summer on its Purple Line Ipswich - Essex - Crane Beach shuttle.
