The New MBTA Yawkey Station is a stand alone, state funded Commuter Rail Station. Meredith has been designated by the MBTA to develop and construct a $13.5 million state funded Yawkey Station, a full service Commuter Rail Station and multimodal center with direct access to South Station to the East and Framingham and Worcester to the West. The Project is also just one block from the newly designed MBTA Green Line and Bus Station, a $32 million renovation project, and MBTA’s Kenmore Square and Fenway stations. Yawkey Station commenced construction in the Spring of 2011 and will be completed by early spring of 2013. Yawkey Station will be the first “zero net energy” MBTA transit station in the Commonwealth. The renovations to Yawkey Station are currently underway. When complete, there will be 33-40 stops (versus 17 currently) at Yawkey Station per day, significantly improving the level of service and convenience to commuters, area residents, and Boston Red Sox fans.
