South Shore Garages

Rendering of the renovated garage Braintree station

We're completely rehabilitating the Braintree Station and Quincy Adams Station parking garages to bring both into a State of Good Repair.

Contract awarded: March 2018
Projected completion: December 2021
Budget: $64.3 million
Status: Construction

Due to  COVID-19’s impact on ridership, we’ve been able to close an additional 450 spots at Braintree Garage and an additional 900 spots at Quincy Adams Garage, further accelerating work.

Accelerated Work

From June 18 – July 1, there will be a full service shutdown on the Red Line to allow for accelerated work on Red Line Maintenance and South Shore Garages projects. As part of this work, crews will perform concrete repairs at the garages and begin replacing an elevator at Quincy Adams.

Zone 1A Fares

On weekdays during this work, riders can travel between Braintree and South Station on the Commuter Rail for just $2.40, the same price as a Zone 1A or subway fare. Simply show your CharlieCard or CharlieTicket to the conductor.

What to Expect at Braintree During This Work

There may be limited interruptions of subway and Commuter Rail service while we work on the Braintree Garage. We'll schedule this work for weekends and off-peak hours when possible.

On February 10, 2020, we closed 400 parking spots at Braintree Garage. We accelerated the schedule so work can be completed earlier than planned, and we expect to reopen all parking spots by July 2021.

During this time, riders can consider parking at Quincy Adams Garage or at one of Braintree’s Ivory Street lots, where more than 300 surface-level spots are available.

What to Expect at Quincy Adams During This Work

Work is ongoing at Quincy Adams Garage. In December 2018, 300 spots were closed for concrete repairs, and 1 elevator was closed for replacement by summer 2020.
