MBTA opens larger concourse at North Station

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Delaware North Cos. Inc.-Boston recently opened a newly expanded and renovated waiting area at North Station.

Under a seven-month, $5 million project, MBTA added 20,000 square feet of space in the concourse area. The station now features a large customer waiting area, larger restrooms, improved accessibility and an overhead electronic board to provide schedule and track information. In addition, MBTA moved tracks and platforms back almost 80 feet to relieve station congestion. And soon, passengers will have access to food and beverage vendors, and an ATM.

Delaware North Cos.-Boston, which runs Boston Celtics’ arena TD Banknorth Garden located above North Station, financed the project.
