World Trade Center is a transportation station in Boston, Massachusetts, on the MBTA's bus rapid transit (BRT) Silver Line. The station is located on Congress Street at C Street/World Trade Center Avenue on the South Boston Waterfront. It is located between Boston's World Trade Center and Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC), near the Commonwealth Pier and a seasonal ferry to Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Station layout[edit]

The station was designed by G plus G Architects. Its mezzanine level is intended to represent an underwater environment, with blue lighting, an undulating ceiling and sandy, mica-flecked stone tiles. Lenticular art designed by Marybeth Mungovan and Jason Asselin is installed on the lobby level of the station.

World Trade Center Station is a stop on the MBTA's Silver Line Gateway service to Chelsea, Massachusetts, which opened April 2018.[3] In the future this route might be extended to the proposed Urban Ring Project, a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Line designed to connect the current MBTA Lines to reduce strain on the downtown stations.[4]
