Ruggles Station Improvements

We're making upgrades at Ruggles Station that will 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: December 2017
Projected Completion: 2020
Budget: $36.5 million
Status: Construction

Today, 30% of Commuter Rail trains bypass Ruggles to stop at Back Bay, so riders have to take the Orange Line back to Ruggles for bus or shuttle service.

A new Commuter Rail platform and updated busway will ease congestion along the Commuter Rail and make it easier for customers to make transfers.

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.

What We're Doing

  • Building a new 800-foot platform so more trains can make stops at Ruggles
  • Regrading the lower busway and adding a new elevator to make it easier to transfer between modes
  • Replacing existing elevators throughout the station to improve accessibility to Orange Line and Commuter Rail platforms
  • Widening sidewalks and making other improvements along travel paths to make the station safer and more secure for pedestrians
