Union Station, one of the Commonwealth's most beautiful structures, underwent a magnificent restoration in 1998-1999. Today it serves as an inter-modal hub, hosting Amtrak, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority commuter rail service to Boston, taxi service, as well as both intra- and inter-City bus services and free Wi-Fi access.
Union Station is undergoing improvements to the platform, track and its accessibility to patrons. The upgrades will improve the station's function, capacity, level of service, safety and make it fully accessible. Learn more about this project and its impact on passengers.
Grab a bus or coach at the Union Station terminal to travel outside the City, or catch a WRTA bus at the WRTA Hub nextdoor to travel to nearby destinations.
