  • Customer experience: All-new benches, shelters, and safety features at each station

This project is one of many we're working on to ensure twice as many passengers have access to a safer, more comfortable, and more reliable Green Line by 2030.

Project Features

  • The consolidation of St. Paul St and BU West stations into Amory St Station
