Symphony Station Accessibility Improvements

Symphony Station serves the E Line in one of Boston’s busiest cultural and historical neighborhoods. We’re working on major improvements to make Symphony Station accessible and safer for our riders.

Design contract awarded: August 2019
Projected design completion: December 2021
Budget: $30.7 million (construction only)
Status: 75% design

As part of the Green Line Transformation (GLT), this project meets the following goals:

  • Accessibility: Raised platforms, new elevators, and accessible bathrooms
  • Customer experience: Improved wayfinding and lighting

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.

Why We’re Doing This Work

Several stations on the Green Line are not currently accessible. At Symphony Station, there are no step-free pathways from the entrances to the platforms, and the station can’t be accessed by people with wheeled mobility devices.
