Quincy Center Station opened in 1971 as part of the new South Shore branch of the Red Line, and was its southern terminus until 1980. Service began on the Middleborough/Lakeville and Plymouth/Kingston commuter rail lines in 1997; Greenbush Line service began on October 31, 2007.
Starting on July 4, 2012, the Quincy Center parking garage was closed indefinitely due to structural issues. At 41 years old, the garage is the oldest anywhere on the MBTA system. The Red Line and commuter rail platforms remain open.
