World Trade Center Station is a planned stop on the MBTA's Silver Line Gateway service to Chelsea, Massachusetts. 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.
