The Plymouth commuter rail is within a mile or 2 and has access to Boston. The Kingston stop is not far either and offers more frequent trips to Boston.
FYI - The property on Spooner street you inquired about has recently gone under agreement.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance :)
