Kenmore (also known as Kenmore Square) is an dual-island platform rapid transit station in the Kenmore Square area of Boston, Massachusetts. The station, owned and managed by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, lies on the Green Line's "B," "C," and "D" branches. It is located at the intersection of four major road and rail transport arteries: Commonwealth, Beacon, and Brookline Avenues, and Boylston Street.

ervices

The station serves as the branching off point for the B, C, and D trains on the Green Line. While all trains follow the same route going inbound (with the exception of the E train which doesn't join the others until Copley Square), going outbound they split at Kenmore branching off into different above-ground routes.

Nearby attractions

Kenmore station is the primary station for passengers wishing to go to Fenway Park, located just one block away. However, many travel to Fenway station despite its longer distance from the stadium.

Incidents and accidents

The station was closed for two months in 1996, after the Muddy River overflowed its banks, completely submerging the platform and some of the mezzanine.cite news | author = Julie Masis | url =http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/08/26/rivers_revival_is_more_than_a_pipe_dream/ | title = River's revival is more than a pipe dream | publisher = The Boston Globe| accessdate = 2007-08-29] cite web |url=http://members.aol.com/netransit8/flood/flood.html |title=The Green Line Flood of 1996 |accessdate=2007-08-29 |author=Scott Moore |coauthors=George Chiasson, Jonathan Belcher |format=HTML |work=NETransit]

Fares

Until January 1, 2007, Kenmore was the last Green Line station heading outbound where passengers were required to pay a fare upon boarding, as boarding outbound trains at surface stops was free. Passengers now pay fares at surface stops regardless of whether they are going inbound or outbound. It was for this reason that fans going home from the game to the Newton Highlands region (serviced by the D) were advised to use the 'Fenway' stop.

2005-2009 accessibility improvements

Since 2005, Kenmore has been undergoing re-construction in order to meet ADA accessibility requirements. Despite the almost constant work, the station has remained open. Major works include raised platforms for level boarding with Green Line trains, elevators and escalators, , a new bus shelter with a transparent semi-arched canopy, and a new glass canopy will be placed in the middle of the intersection. The Boston Globe reported that there were severe delays in construction and that the construction would be completed by November 2007;cite news | author = Mac Daniel | url = http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/03/04/kenmore_t_work_now_in_extra_innings/ | title = Kenmore T work now in extra innings| publisher = The Boston Globe| accessdate = 2007-04-17] work is still ongoing as of September 2008 with no end in sight.
