A 250-foot-long pedestrian tunnel connecting commuter rail with the T opened at North Station on January 6.
The run—which allows riders to move from commuter rail to the Orange and the Green lines without going outside—was supposed to open in December, and is part of a slew of ongoing changes at TD Garden.
Riders had previously been forced to exit North Station through its lobby on the street level of TD Garden and then scurry to the T lines in whatever weather or through whatever crowds they encountered.
The new tunnel runs to the North Station lobby and to the T station across Causeway Street. Steve Poftak, general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, noted the tunnels opening on Sunday, January 6.
Very pleased to announce the opening of the North Station Pedestrian Passageway today and to welcome our first customers. Will be open for tomorrow’s commute. #mbta pic.twitter.com/DarJdIKI3S— Steve Poftak (@spoftak) January 6, 2019
