Fare control

Formerly, Prudential and Symphony were the only two underground stops on the Green Line where riders paid upon boarding the train, rather than when entering the station. This changed in June 2006 when the MBTA installed the Charlie Card / Charlie Ticket electronic fare collection system at Prudential. Passengers now pay with their Charlie Card/Ticket when entering the station, and can board at any door to the train.

Accessibility

This station is wheelchair accessible, featuring raised platforms and elevator service to the Huntington Arcade of the Shops at Prudential Center at the base of the Prudential Tower.
