Is there a T that I can take to get to Wayland?
I don't think so. There used to be bus service between Worcester and Boston on Route 20 that stopped in Wayland center many years ago, but I don't think that runs anymore. In any case there's no commuter rail or busses that I can find on mbta.com.
The closest commuter rail stop might be Lincoln. I remember there was a character on the TV show "St. Elsewhere", a teenage girl who lived in Wayland, who explained to her Dad that she got home by taking the train and walking from "Lincoln Station." I always thought that was funny, because it would be a bit of a hike, although not impossible, depending on where there house was exactly.
Most trains that leave South Station stop at Back Bay as their 2nd stop. Even the Amtrak lines. A few trains go straight South but most go through Back Bay.
The outbound Framingham/Worcester line originates in South Station, stops in Back Bay, Yawkey, Newtonville, etc. as well as in Natick which is the next town over from Wayland. Depending on where you're staying in Wayland, this might be closer than Lincoln. This is the MBTA Commuter Rail and not part of the T system.
Just an informational note that the MBTA and "T" are synonomous (sp?). The T in MBTA is where the "T" name came from.
