MBTA renovates Copley Station


Last week, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) completed a $61 million modernization project at Copley Station, which is located on the Green Line.

Originally opened in 1913, the facility now complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The station also features new elevators, glass entrances, a new escalator, raised platforms to accommodate low-floor vehicles, two new emergency egresses and automated fare-collection equipment. MBTA also restored the wrought iron inbound headhouse located adjacent to the Boston Public Library.
