Ruggles Station Improvements

riders on Ruggles Commuter Rail platform

We've made upgrades at Ruggles station that allow more Commuter Rail trains to stop there, and make it easier for riders to move through the station or transfer to other modes.

Contract awarded: June 2017
Project Completed: December 2021
Budget: $36.5 million
Status: Complete

Before these improvements, 30% of Commuter Rail trains bypassed Ruggles station to stop at Back Bay station. Riders traveling to the Ruggles area had to take the Orange Line from Back Bay to Ruggles to connect to bus or shuttle service.

A new Commuter Rail platform and updated busway have eased congestion and made it easier for customers to make transfers.
