The station opened in 1987 as part of the renovation and relocation of the southern Orange Line. The Orange line runs parallel to the Northeast Corridor, which carries Amtrak trains and several MBTA commuter rail lines. Connections to the commuter rail are available at Ruggles and Back Bay stations, both one stop away from Massachusetts Avenue. The subway station, coincidentally, has a Subway restaurant inside it.
