    MBTA Red Line commuters can now enjoy the newly renovated Wollaston Station after a $36 million project to upgrade it was completed.

    The Quincy-based train station boasts energy-efficient lightning three elevators, two escalators, new restrooms and additional pathways following more than a year of work. The project began in January 2018 as the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority works to upgrade its system.

    Previously, Wollaston Station was the only Red Line stop that was non ADA-accessible, according to MBTA officials.

    The MBTA is investing $2 billion to improve Red and Orange Lines. New cars, signal system replacement and upgraded tracks are all included under those funds, officials said. On Wednesday, six new Orange Line cars went into service.
