Besides the economic opportunity offered by these nearby cities, Stoughton also contains its own local commercial activity of family-owned and large businesses. The Stoughton Technology Center contains the world headquarters for a major manufacturer of footwear. This community is attractive to both new residents and businesses due in part to highway and rail access. Route 24 passes through town and Interstates 93 and 95 are close by. Additionally, Stoughton is linked to Downtown Boston by MBTA commuter train.
