Reconstruction of Yawkey Station Results In Schedule Adjustments For Worcester Line

Posted on March 23, 2012

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Massachusetts Bay Commuter Railroad Company (MBCR) today announced schedule adjustments to the Worcester commuter rail line beginning Monday, April 2nd.

The revised schedule is due to the $13.5 million reconstruction of Yawkey Station as a full-service station as part of the Fenway Center mixed-use redevelopment project. This work necessitates single track operations between South Station and Allston.

When renovations are complete, new Yawkey Station will provide two, full-length, accessible station platforms that provide pedestrian access to and from Beacon Street and Brookline Avenue. Service at Yawkey Station will also have more than double the number of stops each day.

The following schedule changes will be in place starting Monday, April 2nd:
