Ruggles Station Platform Project
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 construction of a new 800-foot long commuter rail platform to serve Track 2 and replacement of existing station elevators. With the addition of this new platform, more MBTA commuter rail passengers will be able to use Ruggles Station rather than bypassing the station and returning via the Orange Line from Back Bay Station, as they do under the current operation. In addition, the project will seek to improve accessibility, enhancing pedestrian safety, security and address the substantial interior and exterior repairs and improvements necessary to bring the facility up to standard. Overall, the project will enhance customer service and convenience for commuter rail riders destined for Ruggles Station and improves 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.
