Ruggles Station Platform Project

ABOUT

Ruggles Station opened in 1987 and currently serves the MBTA Orange Line, commuter rail Providence/Stoughton, Franklin and Needham lines. Ruggles Station has a vibrant ridership population with 29 inbound and 49 outbound commuter rail trains passing through daily. The Ruggles Station Platform Project will include the development of conceptual and final design for the construction of a new high-level platform to service Track 2, the only track not currently served by a platform. With the addition of this new platform, passengers that are riding the MBTA commuter trains traveling on Track 2 will be able to have access to Ruggles Station rather than bypassing the station and returning via the Orange Line from Back Bay Station, as they do under the current operation. The project will enhance customer service and convenience for commuter rail riders destined for Ruggles Station and improve overall operations for both the MBTA and Amtrak on this section of the Northeast Corridor.

The MBTA held an Open House about the project on October 18, 2012. The meeting presentation can be found here.
