Commuters who use the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s revamped Government Center Station can soon enjoy a cup of coffee and a doughnut while they wait for a Green or Blue Line train to arrive.
Officials from the transit agency announced Friday that a Dunkin’ Donuts will open sometime in the late summer or early fall inside the station on the Green Line level, near the westbound platform.
That’s not all. On the Blue Line, between the northbound and southbound platforms, a second vendor will be offering passengers beverages and snacks at what’s being described as a scaled-down variety store.
The rebuilt Government Center Station, located on the brick plaza outside City Hall, opened its doors to passengers last March, after being shuttered for two years.
The $113 million project, which features a gleaming glass house above ground, was finished on time and on budget.
The spaces where the Dunkin’ Donuts and variety store will be located were built into the new station as part of the renovations.
