Wollaston Station Improvements
We closed Wollaston on January 8, 2018, for a $36 million transformation. It was the only station on the Red Line not accessible to people with disabilities and it no longer met safety, flooding, or operational standards—so we rebuilt it from the ground up.
Contract: Awarded June 2017
Budget: $36 million
Status: Station reopened August 2019
Inside the brand-new station, you’ll find accessibility improvements including 3 new elevators, 2 new escalators, 2 additional stairways, and accessible bathrooms.
We’ve also added new pedestrian paths to, from, and inside the new station, including a new pedestrian bridge, and 2 new sets of fare gates to help reduce lines in the station.
The Wollaston parking lot has been rebuilt and repaved, and it features new lighting, signs and landscaping. As of the reopening, parking prices are:
- $6 on weekdays
- $3 Saturdays and Sundays
- $105 for a monthly pass
While we were able to reopen Wollaston for regular Red Line service in August, we’re still working on some final touches at the station, including:
- Repaving Newport Ave from Brook St to Beale St
- Repaving Greenwood Ave from Woodbine St to Beale St
Take a look back at some of the work we did to rebuild Wollaston.
