Green Line

St. Paul Street is a surface stop on the MBTA Green Line "B" Branch located in Boston, Massachusetts. The station is located in the median of Commonwealth Avenue at St. Paul Street, surrounded by the Boston University campus. St. Paul Street consists of two narrow side platforms which serve the "B" Branch's two tracks.

Stop consolidation[edit]

In October 2014, the MBTA began holding meetings for a proposal to consolidate four stops - Boston University West, St. Paul Street, Pleasant Street, and Babcock Street - located near Boston University's West Campus. The four stops, which are not handicapped accessible, would be turned into two fully accessible stops as part of a planned redesign of Commonwealth Avenue between the BU Bridge and Packard's Corner.[2] Boston University West and St. Paul Street would be consolidated into one station in the block between Amory Street and St. Paul Street.[3]
