What to Expect

Temporary Train Platform Access

Beginning in March 2022, passengers will now use a temporary platform to board trains. Signage will direct riders from the parking garage through the station, leading them to the temporary platform. Riders will also be able to access the temporary platform from the Commuter Rail parking lot.

Any service changes during the project will be posted on the MBTA website for passengers to check before traveling.
