Mansfield Station Accessibility Improvements

A rendering of the new mini-high platform at Mansfield Commuter Rail Station

The Providence/Stoughton Line has the highest ridership on the Commuter Rail and Amtrak. Mansfield Commuter Rail Station, which is a heavily used station on this line, currently has a number of significant accessibility barriers. We’re working to remove these barriers and make Mansfield Station safer and more accessible.

  • Contract awarded: February 2017
  • Projected completion: Fall 2020
  • Budget: $11.3 million
  • Status: Construction

Building a Better T

As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.

Project Features

To bring Mansfield Station up to our accessibility standards, we’re reconstructing the 2 mini-high platforms to allow for easy, level boarding.

The renovated station will also include:

  • 2 new sets of pedestrian stairs and ramps with canopies, which opened March 6, 2020.
  • Better lighting and new wayfinding signs
  • Repaved and coated platforms and with new tactile warning strips and guard rails
  • Parking lot upgrades for improved safety and accessibility

The outbound mini-high platform opened on Monday, April 27, and the inbound mini-high platform opened on Monday, May 4. Ongoing repairs and resurfacing of the remaining portions of the platforms are now underway.

Please continue to check back here for updates on the project and construction activities that may impact your commute.
