Renovated Yawkey Commuter Rail Station to open March 10

MBTA officials have announced that the newly renovated Yawkey Commuter Rail Station will open March 10, the same day the Worcester and Framingham lines will increase service to every station on their lines.

The number of stops at the station, which underwent a $13.5 million makeover, will increase from 17 to 40 per day, MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott said in a statement.

Included in the renovated station are two 700-foot-long train platforms with wheelchair accessibility, four elevators, and a new lobby. The station will also run entirely on solar power, making it the Commonwealth’s only “net-zero energy rail station,” the MBTA said.

Former Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino announced the construction project in November 2010. It was originally scheduled for completion in Spring of 2012.
