South Station ExpansionSouth Station always bustles with crowds of travelers, and the popular new Cape Flyer train has brought additional energy to the Grand Concourse this summer.  Thousands of riders have had their weekend journeys to and from Cape Cod eased by riding the rails, instead of fighting the traffic, from South Station to Buzzards Bay and Hyannis.

The MassDOT South Station Expansion Project Team has also been busy, and we are pleased to share our latest progress with you.  MassDOT is now evaluating, in detail, multiple alternatives for expanding the station concourse, tracks, platforms, and passenger amenities.  We are also developing track, signal, and train movement options for each alternative, while architects are creating design concepts to improve customer movement, access, safety, and comfort within an expanded station.

Meanwhile, the MassDOT blog offers snapshots of South Station past and present, recalling a golden era in sports when the Boston Red Sox traveled exclusively by train and highlighting the many summer destinations that can be reached from South Station.

Finally, as autumn approaches, look for MassDOT South Station Expansion Project Team members who will be on hand at South Station to answer your questions and hear your ideas for the expanded station.  Our August sessions will be:

  • Wednesday, August 21 from 7:30 AM – 9:30 AM
  • Thursday, August 22 from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM

As always, stay tuned to the project website for the latest news and features, such as a look at other  Great Train Stations of the World that, like South Station, have faithfully served the traveling public since the nineteenth century.
