In 1830, Boston chartered a steam engine line to nearby Lowell, pioneering the development of the American intercity railroad. Since then, the economic anchor of New England continues to expand its rail network, with several extensions currently in planning or with construction underway. Meanwhile, it’s home to the busiest light-rail system in the nation, as well as the longest continuously working streetcar system in the world. Continuing to lead the industry, the MBTA commuter rail network was the first in the nation to offer free Wi-Fi and mobile ticketing onboard trains.
LTK opened a regional office in Boston in 1999. The current office is located on the Freedom Trail in the center of Boston, near the famous Boston Common with its swan boats.
