The MBTA has released new commuter rail schedules aimed at improving performance and reliability.
The new schedules take effect on May 23.
The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority said it's the first time in decades that changes have been made to the commuter rail schedule. The new schedules were based on computer-based rail simulations, field testing and other operations changes.
Highlights include a new reverse commute train from North Station to Littleton/495 at 6:45 a.m., an early reverse commute to Fitchburg at 6:30 p.m. and a new express train from Worcester to Boston at 8:05 a.m.

MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack called the list of updates "the most substantive changes in decades."
