Mattapan Station Improvements

Updated February 2014

Project Overview

The Federal Economic Stimulus Program (ARRA) provides funding for MBTA bus service and customer enhancements. A portion of this program is dedicated to carrying out improvements to Mattapan Station. The proposed $0.5 million project includes the following elements:

  • Replacement of two existing platform waiting shelters to provide a significant improvement to the level of weather protection offered. 
  • Relocation of fare vending machines to the shelter closer to the Police Station.
  • Installation of new efficient heating systems at each shelter.
  • Improved weather protection and heating at the existing mini-high platform.
  • Pavement repairs to the River Street busway.
  • Additional station signage, customer information, and bike racks.
  • Pedestrian safety improvements at both busways.

This project is currently under construction and completion is scheduled for early Spring 2014.
