Attention: Red line users (Braintree Line)

Starting on Monday, January 8, 2018, Wollaston station on the Red Line in Quincy will be closed for renovations that are planned to last 20 months. Given the disruption to an existing Red Line station, the MBTA will be setting Quincy Center to Zone 1A and accepting monthly CharlieCard LINK passes on Commuter Rail for trips between Quincy Center and JFK/UMASS and South Station to give riders additional transit options.
 
The only change is riders buying Zone 1 monthly passes to commute to/from South Station or JFK/UMASS to/from Quincy Center, as only a Zone 1A is needed during the disruption.
