Wollaston Station Improvements

The building facade of the newly renovated Wollaston Station, viewed head on from the new parking lot.

A brand-new, rebuilt Wollaston Station reopened for Red Line service Friday, August 16, 2019.

We closed Wollaston on January 8, 2018, for a $36 million transformation. It was the only station on the Red Line not accessible to people with disabilities and it no longer met safety, flooding, or operational standards—so we rebuilt it from the ground up.

Contract: Awarded June 2017
Budget: $36 million
Status: Completed in March 2020

Inside the brand-new station, you’ll find accessibility improvements including 3 new elevators, 2 new escalators, 2 additional stairways, and accessible bathrooms.

We’ve also added new pedestrian paths to, from, and inside the new station, including a new pedestrian bridge, and 2 new sets of fare gates to help reduce lines in the station.

Parking Updates

In addition to repaving the adjacent streets and sidewalks, we also made improvements to the parking lot, including new lights, signs, and landscaping. As of the reopening, parking prices are:

  • $6 on weekdays
  • $3 Saturdays and Sundays
  • $105 for a monthly pass
