MassDOT’s South Station Expansion Team supports Car-Free Week and is working to make car-free travel easier every week by planning a major expansion of Boston South Station. The planned expansion will include more tracks for more trains; larger platforms and waiting areas for passengers; and additional shops, restaurants, and amenities for everyone. What would you like to see at the South Station of the future? We want to hear your ideas!
Please fill out our online questionnaire. We are looking for information about your impressions and experiences – both positive and negative – of South Station. That information, which will all be kept anonymous, will then help to inform our planning work. The online questionnaire is available in English, Spanish, and Chinese.
Please share this message with your family, friends, colleagues, and anyone you think would be interested in helping to shape the future of Boston South Station.
South Station Expansion Team Members will also be on hand at South Station twice in September to answer your questions and hear your ideas. Our September sessions will be:
- Wednesday, September 25 from 12:00pm – 2:00pm
- Thursday, September 26 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm
Look for us in the Main Concourse!
