Worcester Union Station Improvements

A rendering of the proposed changes at Worcester Station as viewed from the garage roof

Between 2018 and 2022, Worcester Union Station will undergo platform, track, and accessibility improvements.

Union Station is a key transportation hub for the Worcester area, and is the western terminus of the Framingham/Worcester Line. It’s also the only station on this route that can only be served by one train at a time.

A design contract for this work was awarded to HDR Engineering for work that will improve the function, level of service, and safety at the station, and make it fully ADA accessible.

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.

Rider Benefits

  • A new, high-level center platform
  • Track, signal, communications, and infrastructure upgrades
  • New elevators, stairways, and pedestrian bridges
  • Accessibility improvements to the commuter parking area

The new pedestrian bridge and elevators will be steel and glass structures with new lighting and wayfinding signs. This will provide a fully accessible route for riders to move safely and comfortably to/from the new center platform to the MBTA parking area and the neighboring community. 

Service Alerts

Throughout this project, we will work to maintain current levels of passenger access to the platform and trains.

Any changes will be communicated in advance on this page and via alerts:
