About the Project

Timeline: 2018 – 2019

Sullivan Square Station will undergo roadway, parking lot, and busway improvements through 2018 and 2019. Work will be done in cooperation with Wynn Boston Harbor.

Service Disruptions

This work is being done in phases to avoid disruptions to service on the bus or Orange Line, but it may impact parking availability and bus stop locations. 


To accommodate busway work, bus stops may be moved. Service alerts will be issued in advance of adjustments, and signs will be posted along the busway to help riders locate their stops.
